Auction planned at home of Tulsa pastor accused of embezzlement

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa pastor Willard Jones plead guilty to stealing just under $1 million from his congregation at the Greater Cornerstone Baptist Church last year.

Court records show that his home was filled with purchases including a mink coat, matching gloves and a Rolex watch all bought with stolen money. All of his property was seized by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Williams and Williams Auction now plans to sell the property to the highest bidder. They handle sales from U.S. Marshals all over the country.

The auction is scheduled for May 25. The first open house is this Sunday.

Remember the pastor who embezzled a million dollars? Well the U.S. Marshals are auctioning his home for the victims. I got a first look inside.
