A former pastor is waiting to stand trial for accusations that he stole more than $100,000 from an elderly parishioner.
Trumbull police arrested Robert Genevicz for larceny.
He once served as pastor of Stratford's First Baptist Church.
Detectives said in 2010 Genevicz was acting as a power of attorney and embezzled close to $200,000 from an elderly man who has since passed away.
Police said his accomplice was identified as Doraine Reed, who is being held on a $100,000 bond.
Authorities said Genevicz and an accomplice bought a Mercedes and a hummer, taking out a loan, registering it and insuring it in the victim's name.
Genevicz is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
