Police say that an Alabama man named Gary Bradley, who goes by “Tripp,” took money from a church's collection plate and deposited the funds into an account he controlled. Witnesses told police that Bradley went before Mayfair Church of Christ and announced he had been stealing from the offering plate. Church officials say Bradley has helped with collection during services. He's accused of taking thousands of dollars from the church and its members. Huntsville police spokesman Lieutenant Michael Johnson says the bank questioned the suspicious nature of the deposits into Bradley's account since the checks were made out to the church. Police say Bradley has been making deposits since last fall. Bradley was arrested and charged with theft of property. (
