They steal too you know

Churches make easy marks. They often have lax financial oversight and operate in a way where too much trust is granted to people in positions of power. It’s only when thing go bad that people start to ask questions. Like in the case of First United Methodist Church Business Manager Sonay Jo Ensey. She stands accused of embezzling $140K and using it for her personal expenses.

"While she was gone, one of the banks notified them that they had an account overdrawn, so they kind of started looking into that. Found that they were missing several thousands of dollars. It turned out to be larger than that," said Moore Police Officer Jeremy Lewis.

Oops, busted because of some slopping business practices. I real pro would have hid the theft much deeper. She must not be a real pro, or a real Christian either…
