A Yantic man was arrested on Monday following an embezzlement investigation involving the Grace Episcopal Church.

Last month, police said they were contacted with concerns over irregular financial activities relating to their annual report.

Andrew Rushford, 62, was the former treasurer of the church and allegedly stole about $30,000 over a period of one year.

Rushford is accused of stealing over $43,000 since 2013 when he took over the treasurer’s position.

He was charged with first-degree larceny.
