HELENA, Mont.—Authorities believe former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf might have broken into Montana homes in search of prescription drugs over the past 1½ years. He will face a judge Monday in his latest criminal case.
Police arrested Leaf after a month-long investigation that culminated with Leaf breaking into an acquaintance's home to steal prescription pain medication, the task force commander who led the probe said Saturday.

Other victims to come forward, Central Montana Drug Force Commander Chris Hickman said.
"We do have some information that this may not be an isolated incident," Hickman said.
Leaf faced a similar accusation in 2008, when he was accused of burglarizing a player's home while he was a quarterbacks coach for Division II West Texas A&M. An investigation turned up that Leaf had obtained nearly 1,000 pain pills from area pharmacies in an eight-month span. He reached a plea agreement that gave him 10 years' probation.
