Albany - The charges continue to mount for a man already behind bars for conning two South Georgia Churches. 153 warrants for financial fraud have now been taken out against 51-year old Jeryl Wilfred Boles.

Investigators say he gained church leaders trust by using his disability to appeal to their sympathies. He racked up more than $30,000 in debt for a Sylvester Church and New Macedonia Baptist Church. Investigators say he used their money to buy everything from groceries to a car. Capt. Craig Dodd said, "As far as a theft goes, taking advantage of a church and using his disability to help him take advantage of a church is about as low as you can get."

Jeryl Boles was previously convicted of doing the same thing in Houston and Taylor Counties. Investigators believe there are more victims here in Albany. If you have had trouble with Boles, call the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office at 431-3222.
