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.
