Greenfield woman arrested on church embezzlement

| December 18, 2009

A Greenfield resident was arrested just after noon Thursday on an indictment from a Highland County grand jury on charges of grand theft and tampering with records in connection with embezzlement from a Greenfield church.

Greenfield Police Chief Tim Hester said the charges against Nancy M. Williams, 55, come as the result of an investigation conducted by the Greenfield Police Department and Ohio Attorney General's Office. The investigation was looking into the alleged embezzlement of more than $40,000 from St. Benignus Catholic Church on South Second Street in Greenfield, where Williams worked as church secretary from 2004 through this year.

Williams was taken to the Highland County Justice Center in lieu of bond and will appear for arraignment in Highland County Common Pleas Court.
