Treasurer Steals Over $100,000 From His Church
Members of Beck Mountain Baptist Church noticed some missing money and asked Carter County Sheriff Chris Mathes to look into it. Investigators discovered over $100,000 had been embezzled from the church over several years. Silas Edward Sams was arrested for the crime and has since been indicted by a Carter County Grand Jury. He is currently free on bond.
