Church reports theft of $20K from coffers

| September 14, 2011

Officials of a Westside church reported Monday an ex-employee stole $20,000 from church coffers, Athens-Clarke police said.

The officials at Young Harris Memorial United Methodist Church uncovered discrepancies during a recent finance committee meeting, and further investigation determined the full extent of the thefts, according to the Rev. Carey Gibson, the Prince Avenue church's pastor.

But Gibson and other church officials haven't yet decided whether to press charges against Kathy Williams Krueger, who had been the church's administrative assistant and office manager.

"We filed a preliminary police report, we'll file a supplemental report with all the documentation, and certainly our insurance company will get involved," Gibson said.
