The Door County District Attorney’s Office says charges could come by week’s end in an alleged case of fraud at a Sturgeon Bay Church. The church contacted Sturgeon Bay Police last month after learning that many checks were written without consent over the past year. They were written to a variety of businesses for high dollar amounts. Police learned there were also fraudulent credit card purchases and some cash was also stolen.

Investigators say all of the fraudulent transactions added up to over $11,000. The suspect is a Sturgeon Bay woman formerly employed by the church as an Administrative Assistant. The investigation was turned over to the Door County District Attorney’s Office requesting charges of felony forgery and felony theft. A criminal complaint with the suspect’s name and the church involved are expected to be issued no later than Friday.
