CHICO, Calif. (AP) - A Chico man has been indicted on charges he
stole nearly $700,000 from a Catholic charity where he served on the board of directors.
A federal grand jury in Sacramento on Thursday indicted 68-year-old Thom Randle on charges of mail fraud, computer fraud and money laundering.
Prosecutors say Randle embezzled $693,000 from the Columbian Retirement Home by transferring the charity's funds to his own accounts between September 2004 and September 2005. The nonprofit
retirement facility is operated by the Knights of Columbus.
Randle was the charity's vice president of finance. Court documents list no attorney for Randle. He is not in custody.
