WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A Winston-Salem woman has been charged with embezzling money from a church where she was working as a volunteer, according to police.
Police say they responded on Aug. 24, 2012 to a report of a volunteer embezzling funds at the St. Benedicts the Moor Catholic Church on East Twelfth Street.
When they arrived, police said they “learned that a volunteer church treasurer in charge of special activity funds had taken over $4,000 from the church’s checking account.”
Police said they continued the investigation.
Around 9 a.m. Monday, police said they arrested 61-year-old Rose Parks Hinson in connection with the embezzled funds.
Hinson “was a volunteer treasurer in charge of The Saint Monica’s Ladies Guild funds,” police said.
The suspect embezzled the funds from the church’s checking account over a 9-month period, police said.
Hinson was released on a written promise to appear in court.
No other details were provided.
