Nuns accused of stealing $500,000 from church school to gamble in Las Vegas
TORRANCE, Calif. -- Two nuns misappropriated "substantial amounts" of funds from a Catholic school in Southern California for their own use, the monsignor of St. James Catholic Church said in a letter to parishioners. An internal investigation found that over several years, Sister Mary Margaret Kreuper and Sister Lana Chang used funds set aside for St. James Catholic School in order to use it on, among other things, flights to Las Vegas so they could gamble in casinos, Monsignor Michael Meyers said in the letter.
