Alvarez, who turned himself in to Laredo authorities, resigned his position after the investigation started in January.
The probe started after a trumpet belonging to the school turned up at a pawn shop and police traced the pawn ticket back to Alvarez, KGNS reported.
Alvarez was booked into the Webb County Jail and later released on bond.
