A former Rio Bravo mayor is arrested on charges of theft, but this is not the first time the he has been in trouble with the law.
"With all the wildfires that we witnessed last year. I think this is a miracle for us."
That was former Rio Bravo mayor Juan Gabriel Gonzalez last year.
Now he is facing charges of theft stemming from a case when he was a mayor of Rio Bravo.
According to authorities Gonzalez had given away a city owned vehicle to somebody else and that vehicle had not been returned.
The Texas Rangers served Gonzalez with a warrant Wednesday afternoon.
He was booked at the Webb County Jail where he posted bail, his bond was set at $10,000.
But this is not the first time Gonzalez has been arrested.
He also faced charges of driving while intoxicated back in July of 2007.
He was arrested for DWI after a Laredo police officer pulled him over along Highway 359.
He refused to take a Breath-A-Lyzer test, and was arrested.
His driver's license was revoked after that case.
Now he is under investigation by the Texas Rangers on charges of theft.
