AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A former office manager and treasurer at a Winthrop church has been indicted on charges she embezzled about $30,000 in church funds.

Tricia Day, of Winthrop, was indicted by a Kennebec County grand jury on a charge of theft by unauthorized taking that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

According to the indictment, funds from the United Methodist Church were stolen between Jan. 1, 2013, and Jan. 5, 2015. The case was investigated by Winthrop police. Capt. Ryan Frost said as much as $30,000 in church funds is missing.

Pastor Ned Crockett tells the Kennebec Journal that the 33-year-old Day had worked for the church for 4 ½ years and was fired in December.

He says the whole church is saddened.
