SBI: Church secretary stole from ministry

Posted November 6, 2012

A church secretary in Harnett County is accused of embezzling more than $61,000 from the ministry, authorities said.

The State Bureau of Investigation last week charged Vicky Lee Price, 50, of Angier, with three counts of embezzlement. Authorities said he took $61,088 from Solid Rock Ministries Church in Angier, where she served as church secretary.

Price is also charged in connection with the embezzlement of $5,817 from Coats Properties, where she worked as a part-time secretary, according to the SBI.

The bureau’s Financial Crimes units is continuing to investigate thefts of church funds at the Erwin Church of God and Hodges Chapel, which are both in Harnett County.

    If the only sin ever comitted had been only a little white lie. The price of redemption would have carried the same price tag.

    .."Its amazing how many "Christian Ministry" folks get caught embezzling, have extra marital affairs, commit sexual acts with minors, or are just plain fleecing the congregation.
    Certainly not what I envision as representative of a person of God... NoRespect"

    That's because you do not understand that THIS theft is NOT of God, for God or any part of God...!!! This IS of weak, sinful man and the devil himself tempting someone and that person succumbing to the temptation..in this case MONEY...!!! If you have NEVER been tempted or gave in to that temptation or fell short of the glory of God...then I'm QUITE sure you do not understand..........never fear though, God's mercy is greater than ANY sin of any man (or woman) on this earth....!!

    Do you think maybe it would be a good idea to never again hire this woman for ANY position that has ANYTHING to do with money????

    If you believe the Bible, and I do, God will forgive her even for something like this. That does not mean the judge should forgive her.
