LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Multiple felony charges against a former City of Lubbock Animal Services Director were dismissed following payments of restitution.

In March of 2014, the Lubbock Police Department filed three felony theft charges against former Animal Services Director Kevin Overstreet and issued a warrant for his arrest.

According to documents obtained by KCBD, the three theft counts were for stealing money between $1,500 to $20,000, offenses that date back to 2012.

Overstreet was accused of writing hot checks at Lowe’s and United grocery stores, along with a Stripes convenience store, as well as accepting payment from two people for services that were not completed.

The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that Overstreet was arrested in Tulsa, Oklahoma in April of 2014.

He was then transferred to the Lubbock County Detention Center on May 11, 2014 and bonded out the same day. 364th District Court Judge Brad Underwood recused himself from the case on June 26, 2014.

In June of 2016, District Attorney Matt Powell signed a dismissal of three charges from the state of Texas, on the grounds that restitution payments were made.
