PAYSON, Ariz. — The Payson Police Department has arrested a teacher who’s accused of having sexual conduct with a minor. 

A tip made to the Payson Unified School District earlier this month launched an investigation of alleged misconduct between a teacher and a former student. 

The investigation resulted in the arrest of teacher Miles Huff on Tuesday. He’s been booked into the Gila County jail and is facing several counts of sexual conduct with a minor.

A social media post made by the school district in 2021 indicates that Huff had also been a girls basketball coach for Payson Unified.

Police said its investigation into the case is ongoing. Anyone with information can contact 928-474-5177.
