PIKE CO, IN (WFIE) -  Indiana State Police arrested a former treasurer of a local church on Monday.

After an investigation, ISP says 68-year-old Phyllis Jones embezzled over $257,000 from the Gospel Center Church in Petersburg.

Jones was arrested after she turned herself in at the Pike County Jail.

She was later released after posting bond.

The alleged misappropriation of funds started in January 2003, with the most recent incident occurring in April.
