Generic News Flash graphic

On Thursday, October 6, 2022, Kyle Lobo voluntarily resigned as a police officer from the San Marcos Police Department. Lobo’s peace officer license will reflect a dishonorable discharge as a result of his resignation in relation to allegations of criminal misconduct. 

The San Marcos Police Department was notified on Monday night, October 3, by the Hays County Sheriff’s Office of a criminal accusation related to family violence. San Marcos Police immediately placed Lobo on administrative leave and began a concurrent internal investigation while the Hays County Sheriff’s Office conducted an independent criminal investigation.

The Hays County Sheriff’s Office obtained arrest warrants for Lobo, and he was arrested by them at the San Marcos Police Department after submitting his resignation. The arrest warrants were for Continuous Violence Against the Family and Injury to a Child. Because this is an ongoing criminal and internal investigation, the San Marcos Police Department cannot provide further comment at this time.
