Lufkin Police arrested former Lufkin ISD student Francisco Javier Nolasco, 29, on charges of stalking three teachers at Lufkin High School over a five-year period.

The affadavit for his arrests states Nolasco first denied but then admitted to repeatedly calling and texting three teachers from Lufkin ISD, two currently still employed there. When questioned on why he made these calls and texts, he said, “It was stupid.”

The affidavit also stated that the stalking began in May 2013. A teacher said she had received blocked phone calls for six months that she ignored until they progressed to every five to 10 minutes during the night almost every night of the week.

The teacher filed charges, and detectives began investigating. Detectives believe Nolasco used a spoofing app to create a fake phone number so that his phone number was not shown.

Another teacher began receiving calls and texts in April 2018. Detectives collaborated with Lufkin ISD Police and learned that Katy ISD was investigating a similar case with one of their teachers who was formerly employed by Lufkin ISD.

The police departments sent subpoenas to Pinger for the user’s information and found that it was fake, so they also sent subpoenas to Consolidated Communications to find the user’s IP address that was listed under Nolasco’s name. They found the same user made calls to all three teachers.

Nolasco was in the Angelina County Jail with no bond set as of Monday afternoon.
