The former owner of Pappy Chuck’s Candy Shoppe embezzled more than $167,000 from St. John’s Lutheran Church, according to Bellefonte police.

Pastor William Osman and a member of the church’s congregation met January 2 to discuss money that was missing from the church’s bank account. The two found inconsistencies and believed the church would be out of money in two years if the trend continued, according to court documents.

The investigation led police to the church’s treasurer, Chuck Kormanski, who held that role since 1998. (Click here to read more)
