Former Martinsburg High quarterback Justin “Cookie” Clinton is now facing charges of breaking and entering, along with petit larceny at his former high school, accused of stealing about $2,000 and other items.
According to a report in the Martinsburg Journal, Clinton was identified on surveillance video by athletics director Greg Reed and football coach Dave Walker. Clinton allegedly entered the school’s main office on Aug. 29 and took nearly $300 of cash, checks and a set of keys from the secretary’s desk.
Clinton is also accused in a second theft that followed, including $1,700 that went missing from a bag in Reed’s office. The cash, keys, and other items were reportedly returned to the school after Clinton was confronted by police.
Clinton led Martinsburg to its third straight Class AAA state championship in 2012, and had originally signed a letter of intent to play football at the University of Charleston.
