A man of the law for the La Joya school district is now facing charges laced with alcohol and drugs.
Authorities say Raul Garcia was pulled over on the 2100 block of Jackson Road in the city of Edinburg on Friday.
Garcia is accused of having cocaine, open alcohol containers and a loaded gun inside his vehicle. The la Joya-ISD police officer was charged accordingly yesterday and issued a $30,000 bond.
La Joya-ISD officials say Garcia has been with the department for 11 years and is currently on administrative leave without pay.
