Spring Valley Village Police Chief Loyd Evans is parting ways with the Houston-area town amid a $300,000 overtime scandal

SPRING VALLEY VILLAGE, Texas (KTRK) — Spring Valley Village, an enclave in western Houston that is home to about 4,300 people, will be sacked by its police chief, who city officials said has authorized nearly $300,000 in overtime for himself.

Chief Loyd Evans’ fate was decided during a City Council meeting on Tuesday, where the city reached an agreement in principle on Evans’ departure.

It wasn’t immediately known when the move would be official, but Spring Valley Village officials expected it to come either later in the day or in the coming days.

Evans has remained silent since being placed on paid leave after a special council meeting on April 1. He chose not to speak after Tuesday’s session.

The revelation of the alleged misappropriation of hundreds of thousands of dollars came as officials said the mayor requested accounting records while considering raises for Spring Valley Village employees.

According to the City Attorney, records have shown that Evans approved overtime hours of $189,038 in 2020 and $96,040 in 2021 on top of his $151,000 base salary.

Records also showed that Evans signed his own time cards.

For Evans, the boss’ attorney insisted that the overtime hours are justified and that they can prove they are reasonable and legal.
