(Middle Tennessee) Just 12-days away from Christmas Eve, a Middle Tennessee man has been arrested for allegedly stealing funds from an area church. The investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the arrest of a Hendersonville, TN man who was indicted and charged with stealing from the church. Evidently, the 32-year-old man was employed by the church where the theft occurred.  

On June 22nd, at the request of 18th Judicial District Attorney General Ray Whitley in Sumner County, TBI special agents began investigating a report of theft from a Hendersonville church. During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that Daniel Meadows, an employee of the church, had access to church funds as part of his job. The investigation revealed that over a two-year period in that position, Meadows stole approximately $198,775 from the church.


On December 2nd, the Sumner County Grand Jury returned an indictment charging Daniel Meadows (DOB 02/15/1990) with one count of Theft of Property $60,000 - $250,000. Meadows was arrested on December 12th and booked into the Sumner County Jail on a $7,500 bond.
