SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in Northern California say a high school coach was arrested on suspicion of possession of child pornography just days after the arrest of his twin brother, also a school coach, on similar charges.

San Jose police Officer Gina Tepoorten says the two investigations were separate and the first arrest didn't lead to the other.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports 47-year-old Clinton Pappadakis, a track coach at San Jose's Oak Grove High, was arrested Feb. 20 after authorities executed a search warrant at his home.

His twin, Clifford Pappadakis, a coach at Willow Glen Middle School in the same city, was arrested Feb. 14 on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

It wasn't known Sunday if either brother has an attorney.
