Salina church's former treasurer arrested for embezzlement
A Salina man accused of embezzling more than $7,500 from a local church for which he served as treasurer was arrested Wednesday after he turned himself in.
Salina police issued a warrant on Dec. 7 for Terry J. Geer, 36, who was wanted on 98 counts of unlawful use of a financial card and one count of felony theft, Salina police Capt. Mike Sweeney said.
Geer is accused of making 53 unauthorized charges at Salina stores and purchasing 45 Moneygrams using a credit card belonging to Episcopal Church of the Incarnation, 639 Max, between May 2013 and June 2014, Sweeney said.
The unauthorized charges totaling more than $7,640 were discovered during an internal audit after church members came to think money was missing from church accounts, Sweeney said.
