Virginia Beach police say a church financial officer has been charged with embezzling more than $287,000.
Police spokesman Jimmy Barnes said Wednesday that 61-year-old Michele M. Roberts of Virginia Beach was the financial administrator for Kings Grant Baptist Church.
He says an investigation showed that between October 2004 and March 2010, Roberts made checks payable to herself and provided false financial statements to the church treasurer.
Roberts was arrested Monday in Fredericksburg on a felony embezzlment charge and is being held in the Virginia Beach Correctional Facility. A bond hearing is set for Thursday.
