| June 24, 2013

WILLMAR, Minn. – The treasurer for a central Minnesota church is accused of stealing more than $60,000 from the congregation.

Paul Alton Hanson, 50, of Willmar, made his first court appearance Wednesday on three felony charges of theft by swindle from Tripolis Lutheran Church of rural Kandiyohi County.

According to the complaint filed in Kandiyohi County District Court, Hanson allegedly wrote 129 checks to himself between July 2011 and January 2013 for $61,623.83 and disguised his actions by writing apparently legitimate church expenses in the church’s financial ledgers.
