Danbury PAL Board of Directors and Executive Director have released a statement about the arrest of a volunteer coach for drug related offenses. The Board says the nature of these accusations are extremely serious and disconcerting. 33-year old Samuel Perkins has been relieved of all coaching duties effective immediately. The organization noted in a statement that PAL was founded in 1964 with the goal of providing children a safe and healthy alternative to drugs, violence, and crime. The Board plans to work with the Danbury Police Department regarding this matter. A substantial quantity of money and illegal drugs were seized from Perkins' Newtown home on Wednesday. He and 24-year old Kayla Martin were charged and released to appear in court at a later date.
