Hockey Coach Accused of Stealing Credit Cards at Kettler

Barry FigA youth hockey coach has been charged with stealing credit cards from Kettler Capitals Iceplex (627 N. Glebe Rd) in Ballston.

Police say the suspect, Barry Fig, stole credit cards from equipment bags left unattended in unlocked locker rooms at Kettler. The bags belonged to recreational hockey players who were in the midst of games at the time of the thefts, police said.

“Barry Fig was captured on video at Kettler Capitals Ice Plex, walking around carrying an equipment bag and hockey stick,” said an Arlington County Police press release. “He entered unattended and unlocked locker rooms and would steal items from equipment bags.”

Fig later used the credit cards at retail stores, according to police. He was arrested in March and charged with five counts of felony credit card theft. He faces similar charges in Fairfax County.

Arlington County detectives are now seeking additional victims in the case.

“Information revealed in the investigation indicates that there are potentially other victims or persons with information regarding this subject,” police said in a press release. “Anyone who has information about this suspect is asked to call Detective James Stone at 703.228.4245 or email [email protected]. To report information anonymously, contact the Arlington County Crime Solvers at 866.411.TIPS (8477). ”

Public records indicate that Fig is 34 years old and lives in Montgomery County. He has coached a youth hockey team in Maryland and a private high school team in the District, according to news articles and an archived social media profile.
