Church member accused of embezzlement in Carter County in Tennessee

A long-time church member in Carter County has been accused of stealing more than $100,000 from his church.

Carter County Sheriff Chris Mathes said Tuesday evening that Silas Edward Sams was charged with theft over $60,000.

He was indicted this past week by a Carter County grand jury in connection with theft from Beck Mountain Baptist Church.

Members of the church approached the sheriff’s office about the missing money. Investigators looked back several years and then brought their findings to the grand jury.

Sams has since bonded out of the Carter County Jail.
