The mega church pastor is being charged with theft by fiduciary after being caught stealing from the church’s tithe. He is currently being held at Fayette County Detention Center located in Fayetteville, Georgia, a metropolitan city if Atlanta. Dollar turned himself in and is currently awaiting transport to the Fulton County Jail.
Church officials say that Creflo Dollar was caught on surveillance video steal tithe money in an office. The video shows Dollar rummaging through wads of cash, taking roughly about $15,000.
Bro. Jerron Thomas, a deacon of the church said:
“This is so surprising, I would have never thought such devious acts would be done by my pastor.”
Dollar has been the senior pastor of World Changers Church International since 1986, and the mega church is home to about 45,000 people and his services are viewed by millions weekly across the world.
This past weekend, Creflo Dollar came under flame for starting a GoFundMe campaign to raise $65,000,000 for the purchase of a new personal private jet. The jet is said to be the fastest jet ever designed for commercial flight. Dollar has claimed on several occasions that he does not receive any pay from the church and that he has earned his wealth from non-church investments and business ventures. Creflo Dollar is reportedly worth $27 million.
Creflo Dollar is expected to go before a judge on Friday, this is when his bond will be set by a judge.

So please, stop with all the ignorant comments and stop jumping to conclusions.
