Nuns stole half a million to go gambling in Vegas

It sounds like a movie plot – two rogue nuns steal half a million dollars and live it up in Las Vegas.

Sisters Mary Margaret Kreuper and Lana Chang embezzled the money over ten years from St. James Catholic School in Torrance, CA.

Kreuper was the school’s principal and would steal tuition checks, depositing them in a secret account. The stolen money was allegedly spent on trips and Vegas casino visits, all while telling parents that the school was on a tight budget.

However, the sisters won’t be facing criminal charges, with the archdiocese imposing “severe sanctions” instead.
