NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A 2006 Bonny Eagle graduate, who was voted the best senior football player in Maine that year then played for Southern Connecticut State University, has been charged in a series of thefts at New Haven-area health clubs.

The New Haven Register reports that 23-year-old John Mychael Wiechman, who is from Buxton, Maine, and lives in New Haven, faces charges including larceny, identity theft and illegal use of credit cards.

Police say items including cash, jewelry, electronics and credit cards were stolen from locker rooms and parked vehicles from April to July. Authorities first arrested Wiechman in March and charged him again on Tuesday on 11 warrants.

Wiechman led the Bonny Eagle football team to two Class A titles and in 2006 won the James J. Fitzpatrick Trophy as Maine’s best senior football player.

Wiechman was a senior running back on Southern’s team last year and the 2008 Northeast 10 Conference offensive player of the year.

He’s being held on $55,000 bail. His lawyer didn’t immediately return a message today.
