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.

Dry weather, sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and gusty north winds will drive elevated fire danger today. We'll have even stronger winds, but cooler temperatures on Tuesday. Fire danger will remain elevated. There will also be a chance for light showers in the Sierra on Tuesday and Wednesday.
