A former Lubbock County employee is now charged with theft, accused of using county property to make money on the side.
The district attorney's office filed charges against Mike Mojica Thursday. He formerly worked for county commissioner Ysidro Gutierrez, who hired him to run his road and bridge operation.
Texas Rangers say that Mojica took old county equipment to his garage, repaired it, and then used it for his private business. Gutierrez fired Mojica last month after learning of the investigation.
