The director of children and youth ministries at All Saints Church in Glen Rock was arrested Sunday after surveillance footage showed him allegedly stealing donation envelopes from the collection basket, police said.
Church officials brought the footage to the police, said Chief Dean Ackerman. The employee, who was not identified, was confronted by officers Bob Surdyka and John Tarantino. Further investigation revealed $582 in cash was missing over a five-week period.
The employee was arrested and released on his own recognizance. He is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 23 in Hackensack.
