IAN SMAY, Evergreen reporter

Broderick Cobbs faces a charge of second degree theft for allegedly stealing money from Pullman’s Community Action Center.

Cobbs will face up to 60 days in jail if found guilty, Merritt Decker, Whitman County senior deputy prosecutor, said.

He also said Cobbs stole at least hundreds of dollars from the group.

“It was over $750,” Decker said. “That’s the amount that makes it a felony.”

Thirty-six-year-old Cobbs’ first appearance for his class C felony will be at 10 a.m. Friday in Whitman County Superior Court.

Cobbs used to work at both WSU and Pullman High School. He served on PHS’s football coaching staff, according to his LinkedIn page.
