TUTTLE, Oklahoma -

Tuttle Police investigate a case of fraud against a church.

The suspect allegedly racked up more than $300 on the Tuttle Church of Christ account at Williams Discount Foods.

According to a Tuttle Police report, the suspect gave the store clerk a 3 digit charge account number to purchase $315 worth of groceries.

An employee with Williams became suspicious of the charges and contacted the church to verify. Turns out, the woman was not a verified user for the account.

"It is kind of surprising how that happened," Pastor Garrell Kidd was shocked to hear authorities believe the woman charged against the account more than once.

Kidd said the church has forgiven the suspect," we don't have any ill will or hard feelings toward anybody."

The church offers services to assist families in need.

Pastor Kidd said they would have gladly helped the woman if she had fallen on hard times," If somebody really needs food to put on the table and maybe has children involved or family that's in a difficult time this church is very benevolent and hospitable."

The suspect's motives are unknown at this time and she has not been arrested. Tuttle Police would not comment on the ongoing investigation.

Williams Discount Foods plans to cover the cost of the fraudulent charges if the suspect is not prosecuted.
