A gay ex-San Francisco police officer is being charged with felony grand theft and embezzlement, according to the district attorney’s office.

Mike Evans, 34, was extradited from Texas and booked at about 1:20 a.m. today (Thursday, October 1). Evans, who allegedly stole about $16,000 while treasurer of the LGBT police officers Pride Alliance but repaid much of the money, was released on $15,000 bail. He’s set to be arraigned Tuesday, October 6. He couldn’t be reached for comment.

Retired gay police Lieutenant Chuck Limbert allegedly tried to block complaints about Evans when Limbert was the alliance’s president. There’s no word yet on whether Limbert, who denied the allegations, will also face charges. Limbert hasn’t respond to phone or text messages.

[Update]: In a text exchange, Limbert said, “I have not been in contact with Mr. Evans at all.” However, he added, “Since I hear another interview has been made and again wrong information is being reported I will be preparing a response.”

It’s not clear what interview or “wrong information” Limbert was referring to.

In response to questions including whether he’s being investigated, Limbert said, “I have no comment at this time. Thank you.” [End update]

The Bay Area Reporter will have more on this story in the Thursday, October 8 edition.
