A Kentucky high school baseball coach is facing multiple drug and firearms charges, including possession of methamphetamine for resale. 

According to the Clarksville (Tennessee) Leaf-Chronicle, Fort Campbell (Kentucky) High School head baseball coach Lance Martin Loeffler was arrested June 9 after being stopped by Clarksville police for not wearing his seat belt. The police found "a pipe, a baggie of brown powder, two baggies containing a crystal substance," two digital scales, six pistols and a rifle in a case in his car, according to the arrest warrant.

The 41-year-old Loeffler, who is also a substitute teacher at a Fort Campbell Middle School, admitted that "he had been selling crystal methampetamine to make some extra cash," according to the arrest warrant.

He was charged with possession of methamphetamine for resale and unlawful drug paraphernalia and possession of firearms during the commission of a dangerous felony and booked into the Montgomery County Jail on $61,000 bond, the Leaf-Chronicle reports.

He was hired as Fort Campbell's baseball coach in 2015
