Court records say accountant stole from and paid back church
Salem Lutheran Church in Wakefield

WAKEFIELD, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say an accountant has been charged with stealing nearly $110,000 from a northeast Nebraska church — money that court records say he’s already more than paid back.

Dixon County District Court records say 45-year-old Michael Pommer, of Wakefield, is charged with 15 counts of theft.

Pommer’s accused of taking the money from two bank accounts of Salem Lutheran Church without church officials’ authorization. The records say the bank account transfers occurred from June 24, 2016, to Sept. 5 this year.

A court affidavit says Pommer has since reimbursed the church nearly $115,000.
