Law officers have captured a man who was allegedly swindling churches out of money under false pretenses. Now, they hope other victims come forward because investigators believe the suspect obtained money from other local places of worship.

Officers with the Taylorsville Police Department arrested Christopher Lynn Denny, age 48 of Caldwell County, on Wednesday, May 20, 2015. Denny was charged with two counts of obtaining property by a false pretense.  Denny is accused of obtaining money from area churches under a false pretense.

The suspect was the occupant of a black 2006 Buick Lacrosse CXS. Bond was set at $20,000.  A first appearance is set for June 1, 2015.  

Chief Dennis James is asking that any Church or Organization that may have had contact with this suspect to please call the Taylorsville Police Department at 828-632-2218. The investigation is continuing and more arrests may be forthcoming.
