Today proved to be a busy morning at the La Joya Police Station. Amid many questionable rumors, the department has removed one of its employees.

According to an official report, one employee was let go. But the reasoning isn’t so clear. The identity of the employee has not been disclosed, but we know it is a female who has worked at the department for a little less than a year. The reason of the termination has not been disclosed. We spoke with the chief of police and this is what he says of the incident. Hernandez adds the department does not wish to reveal any details of the motive of termination to protect the integrity of the police department and for respect to the former employee. He also mentioned the situation is extremely delicate and unfortunate. There is an ongoing investigation and it is possible more details will arise; of course Fox 2 News will keep you informed.
