| May 2, 2011

An Eau Claire man could face nearly 27 years in prison after authorities charged him Thursday with stealing thousands of dollars from a Chippewa Falls church.

Chippewa County authorities have charged Kurt W. Meyer, 39, 2003 Manor Court, with three felonies and a misdemeanor for allegedly stealing Christmas donations from St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, 810 Pearl St., late Dec. 26 or early Dec. 27.

The church collected nearly $30,000 during Christmastime services, some of which was to be sent to an orphanage in Peru.

Meyer faces a felony burglary charge, a felony theft charge, a felony charge of owning tools used for burglary and a misdemeanor for property damage.
