SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVF) — A man in Wilson County has been charged with and arrested for theft from a Christian organization.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) says in October 2018, they began investigating an allegation of theft of about $60,000 from Middle Tennessee Tres Dias (MTTD), a Christian organization based out of Sumner County.

During their investigation, they learned Jeffrey Coleman served as treasurer of the organization from 2013 until 2016, during which he was responsible for collecting money, managing MTTD bank accounts and paying bills.

The TBI also discovered that during his time as the MTTD treasurer, Coleman was the one responsible for the missing $60,000.

Coleman was charged with theft of property, arrested and booked into Sumner County jail on a $10,000 bond.

According to the MTTD website, Tres Dias is an interdenominational three-day movement that aims to concentrate closely on the teachings of Jesus Christ and to have a profound, spiritual encounter with God.
