Two nuns in California allegedly stole more than $500,000 from the school they had been at for years, which they spent in casinos and on vacations.
Bank records show Sister Mary Margaret Kreuper and Sister Lana Lang had been embezzling funds from St. James Catholic School in Torrence for at least a decade, thePress-Telegram reported.
But officials from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles told parents and alumni of the school that auditors have not been able to trace all of the money trail.
Kreuper had retired as the school’s principal earlier this year and she dealt with the school fees, which she allegedly withheld and deposited into an account only she and Chang knew about, the paper said.
While investigators found the two gave some of the stolen money back to the school, the rest was used for their “personal gain.” Kreuper has admitted she took the money and expressed remorse.
Monsignor Micheal Meyers, the pastor at St. James Catholic Church sent a letter to pupils’ parents stating that Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, the nuns’ order, is cooperating with the parish and the Archdiocese to find out how much money was taken.
