Embezzlement investigated at Rogersville, Tennessee church

Rogersville police are looking into the alleged embezzlement of thousands of dollars from a local church by one of its members.
Members with the Bridge Baptist Church on East Main Street in Rogersville recently began suspecting that a member serving as the church's accountant was embezzling thousands of dollars from the church.
Rogersville Police say they have one suspect, although the investigation is far from over and criminal charges aren't expected in the near future.
No solid figure has been released regarding the amount of money missing. One church member with knowledge of the situation estimates the figure is close to $90,000.
The alleged thefts came to light after bills marked as paid in church ledgers came back as unpaid, including monthly dues to the Southern Baptist Association.
