Tractor Recovered; Forklift and Portable Buildings Still Missing at RGCCISD
RIO GRANDE CITY - Large equipment went missing from Rio Grande City CISD; it went unreported until recently.
CHANNEL FIVE NEWS has confirmed part of it was recovered a few weeks ago.
Rio Grande City CISD lost track of some property.
Brenda Lee, Law Enforcement Liaison for the Starr County Attorney's Office, confirms, “It was reported recently that a tractor had been missing since two years ago from the school's inventory.”
That wasn't all, according to Roel Gonzalez, RGCCISD Interim Superintendent.
He says, "The information I have is a tractor, a forklift, and one or two portables.
That was all in the auction phase and we're proceeding from there.”
Gonzalez was hired late December as the interim superintendent after the incident happened.
As he stated, the property went missing and unreported until recently.
A maintenance director found the missing property from inventory lists and brought it up to the school's police chief. The chief took it to Gonzalez.
Gonzalez wanted an outside investigation and referred the case to the county early May of this year.
The Special Crime Unit recovered the tractor and continues to investigate.
