RAPID CITY (AP) - Prosecutors are considering charges against a Rapid City priest who acknowledged he was responsible for stealing from the weekly donations at a church.

KOTA-TV reports that the Rapid City Diocese read a letter at all of its churches Sunday to inform parishioners of the investigation involving Marcin Garbacz. Rapid City police say Garbacz told investigators he had been taking money from the collection at St. Therese.

The Rapid City Diocese says Garbacz has been suspended and is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.
