Internet scheme fleeces Red Wing church

A Red Wing church is out $94,000 after Internet thieves apparently hacked church computers.

The Church of St. Joseph, 426 West Eight St., reported to Red Wing police on March 20 that a large sum of money was taken from the church's bank account without consent.

"What's more shocking than the amount is that we've been attacked by an Internet crime," said church priest Thomas Kommers.
