Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) Authorities say a Reverend who is part of a theft investigation used money from a church trust fund to pay for his two children’s college education.

A Colorado Springs police detective said in an affidavit released Tuesday that the Rev. Donald Armstrong may have misappropriated $392,000 from a Grace Church Trust Fund. Police took financial documents and computers from the Grace and Episcopal Church in November after an 18-month investigation.

Armstrong is accused of taking funds from Grace and St. Stephen’s, the congregation he headed before he and his followers broke away in early 2007 to affiliate with the Convocation of Anglicans in North American.

Police are still investigating the case and have not yet turned it over to prosecutors.
