SPCA's Garcia Announces Retirement

The man at the center of several animal cruelty cases is retiring from the Texas chapter of the SPCA.

David Garcia acted as "lead investigator" in a series of East Texas "animal rescues."

Last month, a past criminal record surfaced for Garcia.

Earlier this week, the Smith County District Attorney dropped three animal cruelty charges in a case, saying Garcia had not been honest about his criminal record.
