Marshfield Woman Appears in Wood County Court for Allegedly Using Church Credit Card

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014 -- 8:55 AM

-A Marshfield woman appeared in Wood County Court on Monday for allegedly using a church credit card to make personal purchases.

According to investigators, an investigation started in November of 2013 when a pastor at Faith Lutheran Church in Marshfield noticed unusual activity on the church?s credit card. The unauthorized purchases went as far back as April of 2011 and the church had been deprived of $22,251.66.

The pastor told authorities that the card was kept in the desk of 50-year-old Renee Thompson, an employee of the church. Investigators questioned Thompson and she admitted that she used the card to buy pre-paid credit cards and groceries.

Thompson was officially charged on Monday with theft of a business setting greater than $10,000. She is free on a $10,000 signature bond.
