A Bethesda man who was The Washington Post’s 2008 High School Hockey Coach of the Year faces charges of theft in Maryland and Virginia.

Barry Jason Fig, 34, of Chapman Mill Drive in Bethesda was charged in late March in Rockville with credit card theft.

He was charged in Maryland because he had been in possession of the items in Montgomery County and had used them here, according to Montgomery County State’s Attorney prosecutors.

He also faces charges in Virginia.

Fig, who works as a hockey coach in Virginia, stole the items out of locker rooms at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, police said in the release.

He was indicted on 45 counts of theft, fraud and credit card-related charges on May 16.

He targeted at least 13 victims, according to the indictment, which also charged Fig with using the cards to fraudulently buy gift cards and other items. He also stole items from Target, CVS and Giant Food, and possessed a fake ID and drugs, the indictment showed.

Calls to Fig’s family were not returned.
