Pastor Who Defrauded Flock Goes on the Run

He bilked nine people out of  more than $400,000 and caused one victim to lose her home. Now he seems to have decided that God wants him to be a fugitive from justice.

Difficult decision

Bruce Scott, 50, was seen by a traffic camera driving towards the motorway when he was scheduled to be sentenced.

The judge has ordered a warrant for his arrest … following [his] conviction for fraud and theft in November.

The pastor was expected to receive a jail term after he was found guilty with wife, Belinda, 43, of defrauding several people over 14 years.

The couple worked at the Covenant Church of the Cross,

where they met most of their victims.
