DEXTER, Mo. (AP) – A warrant has been issued for a pastor who is accused of stealing more than $112,000 from his former church in southeast Missouri.
The Dexter Daily Statesman reports that 35-year-old Marcus Credale Geuin is charged with felony stealing and forgery. He does not have an attorney.
Authorities allege that in April 2012, Geuin took money from the First Pentecostal Church of Dexter and forged documents from its board of directors, allowing him to conduct business on behalf of the church.
Church members told police last year that when Geuin left the church, the bank accounts were empty and bills were unpaid. Geuin resigned as pastor in May 2013.
