A Clarksville woman is accused of stealing nearly half a million dollars from the church she worked for.

Connie Parker, 71, is charged with theft over $250,000.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents said while Parker was working as a treasurer for First Presbyterian Church in Clarksville, she stole about $498,000.

Agents said Parker manipulated accounting reports to the church's board to try to mask the crime. The church no longer employs Parker.

Parker was booked into Montgomery County Jail $50,000.
