Former Lindenwood University assistant football coach arrested for selling drugs

A former assistant coach at Lindenwood University was arrested for the possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and placed in jail Tuesday afternoon.

Kenneth Sims II worked with the respected Lions’ football program for about two years before recently resigning from his position last month.

An intense police raid of Sims’ house and car, as well as the house of Benjamin Wilson, Sims’ apparent drug-dealing partner, resulted in findings of numerous jars of marijuana. According to Fox 2 Now St. Louis, neighbors say the bust included a SWAT team raid, and that the house often had a lot of suspicious activity.

“It was the frequent comings and goings and the fact that people were not getting out of the car to go in the house,” says Kathleen Peterson, nearby resident.

Both men were charged with possession, intent to distribute, and other crimes. Sims’ bond is set at $50,000.
