Wentworth, NC -- A pastor and two others--including his son--are in jail for embezzlement after allegedly stealing more than $66,000 from a local church.
Police arrested John Albert Jackson Sr., former pastor of Goodwill Baptist Church, in relation to several charges involving his former church. Goodwill Baptist, on K-Fork Road in Madison, reported to the sheriff's office that it discovered a loss of $66,567.02 during Jackson's 19 years with the church.
Jackson is currently the pastor at Grace Fellowship Church on Brownsboro Road in Winston-Salem.
Jackson, 63, is charged with nine counts of felonious embezzlement of funds; 12 counts of malfeasance of corporation officers and agents; four counts of obtaining property by false pretense; and conspiracy to commit a felony.
Police also arrested Jackson's son, 38-year-old John Albert Jackson Jr. He's charged with felonious embezzlement of funds; conspiracy to commit a felony; and malfeasance of corporation officers and agents.
Treva Tatum Moore, of Madison, was indicted for nine counts of felonious embezzlement of funds; malfeasance of corporation officers and agents; and conspiracy to commit a felony.
Detectives say Jackson Jr. and Moore attended Goodwill Baptist Church until Pastor Jackson resigned in 2011. His resignation came after church members confronted him about missing funds.
Jackson and Jackson Jr. turned themselves into the High Point Police Department. Pastor Jackson was placed in jail under a $10,000 secured bond. Jackson Jr. received a $7,500 secured bond.
Moore turned herself into the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office and received a $40,000 secured bond.
Their court dates are set for Sept. 16 in a case to be prosecuted by W. Scott Harkey.
