FBI joins investigation into Troy church financial mismanagement

by

TROY (WKZO) -- The FBI has joined the investigation of the alleged embezzlement of over 400-thousand dollars at St. Thomas More Parish in Troy.

Police began their probe in January, after an audit by the Archdiocese of Detroit found questionable transactions and practices, which led to the temporary removal of Reverend Edward Belczak as the pastor of the church.   The audit showed Belczak's financial practices included giving a so-called "ghost employee" 240-thousand dollars in pay and benefits and taking over 90-thousand-dollars in excess compensation over a period of six years.

Troy police say the FBI started their investigation into the matter last month and no one has been charged.
