The wife of a man accused of bilking a church out of money in 2011 was arrested Tuesday on similar charges, the Hoke County Sheriff's Office said.
Donna Greene Bundy, 54, of the 2100 block of Constitution Drive in Fayetteville, is charged with embezzlement, a Sheriff's Office release said.
Her husband, Jeffrey David Bundy, was charged in November 2012 with obtaining property by false pretense, the release said.
An official from Ashley Heights Baptist Church at 10351 Aberdeen Road, reported that in July 2011, the church had hired Bundy, the owner of SG One Inc., for a project involving modifications of the building, the release said.
The agreed-upon price was $19,816, the release said, and church officials agreed to pay in advance so Bundy could purchase materials and other work-related equipment.
Chruch officials spent several months trying to get Bundy to do the work and finally told him to start the project or return the money, the release said.
Bundy refused to have any more communication with the church representatives, the release said, and was unable to be found.
Church officials contacted the Sheriff's Office and investigators found Bundy and filed the charge against him, the release said.
Donna Bundy's bail was set at $51,000.
