Nuns stole cash to gam­ble

Sunday Star-Times - - World -

Two nuns stole at least half a mil­lion dol­lars from a pri­vate Catholic school to go on gam­bling trips, the Arch­dio­cese of Cal­i­for­nia says. Par­ents of pupils at St James School in Tor­rance al­leged that Sis­ter Mary Kre­uper, the head teacher, and Sis­ter Lana Chang, her deputy, of­ten vis­ited Las Vegas. ‘‘When the trips were raised, they would say, ‘We’ve got a rich un­cle’,’’ said Jack Alexan­der, the fa­ther of a stu­dent at the school. A lawyer for the arch­dio­cese said it would not con­tact the po­lice be­cause the or­der had agreed to re­fund the money and ‘‘se­verely sanc­tion’’ the nuns.
