Teacher resigns over pot possession arrest
A local teacher arrested for possession of marijuana has now resigned.
LISD school officials confirmed that Roberto Lara, Jr. has turned in his resignation.
He was a teacher at Cigarroa Middle School and was pulled over earlier this week by police.
The traffic stop was made in the 700 block of Lafayette and authorities say Lara seemed nervous when the officer approached him.
A search of the vehicle turned up bags full of hydroponic marijuana.
The 28-year-old was arrested on a felony charge of possession of marijuana.
