Church treasurer steals thousands from congregation

| January 31, 2012

SCHOHARIE, N.Y. — It's a big theft at a small Church. Police said a woman stole more than a $100,000 from her own congregation.

Police said Emma Maxwell took about $143,000 from the Breakabeen-North Blenheim Presbyterian Church over the last four years. She'd been the churches treasurer since June 2007, making her the sole person responsible for the church's bank accounts.

Officers said the 54-year-old went on a shopping spree with the money.
