Former Burnsville youth minister charged with stealing from church

| March 29, 2012

A former youth minister is accused of stealing $8,000 from a Burnsville church last year.

John Glenn Mertes, 40, of Burnsville appeared this week in Dakota County District Court on a felony charge of theft by swindle involving the alleged thefts in 2011.

Burnsville police said the case involves Mary, Mother of the Church at 3333 Cliff Road.

In January, officials at the Roman Catholic church called police to report a possible theft after realizing that a $500 check from a fundraiser was missing, according to a criminal complaint.
