HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

An associate pastor has been arrested for stealing more than a quarter of a million dollars from his church in Houston.

Harris county prosecutors say 55 year old Russell Thompson is charged with felony theft.

He's accused of stealing $284,000 from the city of refuge church where he served as an associate pastor.

Investigators say Thompson created a separate account and deposited checks intended for the church over a two year period.

He's out on a half million dollar bond.
