Diocesan employee starts blaze to hide fraud deals

AN ACCOUNTANT employed by an American diocese has been arrested and charged with arson after its finance offices went up in flames.

John Weber, 45, an accounts supervisor for the Catholic diocese of Wilmington. Delaware, is accused by the state authorities of starting the blaze to cover his tracks in the parish following a series of fraudulent money deals.

The fire, which caused more than £100,000 worth of damage, occurred shortly after an inspection of the diocesan books revealed financial irregularities.

Mr Weber, who has worked for the Wilmington diocese for nine years, is suspected of writing cheques to himself to the value of £6,000.
