WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) - The former business manager at St. John Vianney School and Parish is wanted by authorities for allegedly embezzling $134,545.
Jim Kulfan, who was relieved of his duties at the parish on Dec. 21, 2011, is named in a probable cause affadavit by investigators. They believe he stole the money in cash and by writing checks to himself.
He has not yet been arrested.
The Wyoming Police Department said that detectives, a prosecutor and Kulfan's lawyer are working out a time for him to make his first court appearance.
According to the court file, he will have to post a bond of $20,000 to be released from jail.
No one answered the door of Kulfan's Ramblewood apartment when 24 Hour News 8 knocked on Monday.
In a note to his parishioners in the church bulletin on Jan. 1, Fr. Mike Alber said he fired Kulfan, but would not discuss the specifics of why.
The charge of embezzlement over $100,000 could get Kulfan 20 years in prison.
