A former secretary at a Del Valle ISD elementary school is accused of padding the payroll to allow three relatives to receive pay checks they did not work for.

Christa Garcia, her cousin, Talitha Avila, sister, Desori Avila, and brother, Ruben Avila, are all facing felony charges of  engaging in organized criminal activity.

Garcia was the substitute coordinator at Baty Elementary School.  According to a police affidavit, she put down her relatives names as substitutes for employees that did not require one, costing the district more than $11,000.

Police have also charged Garcia with theft by a public servant and tampering with government records.
