The Corpus Christi Caller Times reported that a Kingsville Fire Department official was being held in jail late last week on suspicion of possessing child pornography.
Nueces County Jail records showed that Jose Armando Sandoval, Jr., 53, was being held on $50,000 bail for possessing child pornography with the intent to promote.
Kingsville Fire Chief Adrian Garcia told the newspaper that Sandoval is a captain in the department but declined to provide further comments. He deferred questions to the city’s legal department. Officials there told the Caller Times that the newspaper would have to file an open records request for information about Sandoval’s status at the department following his arrest.
