Connect Rome, Georgia church suspects embezzlement

Pastor Josh Roberts of Connect Rome City Church told Rome police that a former employee allegedly took thousands of dollars of the church’s money and put it into his own account, reports stated. According to a Rome Police Department report:
The church discovered between $20,000 and $30,000 was taken in a five-and-a-half month period after the employee opened a separate nonprofit account and began putting church funds into that account. Roberts told police church leaders learned the employee, who has yet to be charged, also tried to claim that an older laptop was damaged during a church trip and was looking for insurance to pay for it. Rome police officer Michelle Sims said Wednesday the investigation is ongoing.
