CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. —
A woman has been charged with stealing more than $25,000 from a church bank account. Kimberly Ann Clark, 31, of Dickerson Run, was charged Monday with two felony counts each of theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, and access fraud; and two misdemeanor charges. According to police, Clark electronically transferred funds from the First Baptist Church of Connellsville to her credit card to pay personal debts while working as the church's secretary. "Sometimes people get into these situations, and they have access to money," Connellsville Police Chief James Capitos said. "This is very serious because that's a lot of money." Authorities said Clark told police she used some of the money to finance a gymnastics business. A Channel 11 news crew went to the site of her business and found only a vacant building. Some of Clark's former clients told WPXI's Timyka Artist they haven't seen her in months and weren't reimbursed when the business went under. First Baptist Church pastor the Rev. Gerod D. Duff said the church is praying for Clark. Clark was released on $20,000 bond and faces a preliminary hearing on May 17.
