Holtz Turns Himself In, Faces Numerous Felony Charges


The former Evansville Parks Director resigned last summer

Former Evansville Parks Director Brian Holtz is accused of numerous financial crimes. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

The Evansville Police Department says it obtained an arrest warrant for Holtz following an investigation by its Financial Crimes Detectives.

Sgt. Anna Gray said Holtz was made aware of the warrant, turned himself in, and was booked into the Vanderburgh County Confinement Center Monday.

Police and the mayor’s office were expected to provide more details Monday afternoon.

In a release, Gray says Holtz faces charges of Official Misconduct, Fraud on a Financial Institution, Counterfeiting, and Forgery.

He stepped down last July, and Deputy Mayor Steve Schaefer has served as the interim director of parks and recreation since then.
