East Texas Constable Under Investigation

An East Texas constable could be in trouble for something he allegedly did as a landlord. Gregg County Precinct-4 Constable Robby Cox is being investigated by the Easton Police Department.

One of his tenants, a single mother of four, says all of her family's stuff was thrown out in the rain on Christmas Eve. Easton's chief of police says state law prohibits a landlord from putting a tenant's belongings out in bad weather.

Cox could face "criminal mischief" charges.
