Bryan Police have been looking for him for two and a half weeks.
Now, a former Bryan pastor, wanted for embezzlement, turns up at a church in New York.
A Harlem website announces "officers and members of the Bethany Baptist Church family are proud to announce that Dr. Kris Erskine, Pastor-Elect, will be preaching dynamic sermons on potential, purpose and power each Sunday beginning June 1st."
On June 5th, Bryan Police issued a warrant for Erskine's arrest.
He's accused of taking $10,000 from the church he pastored in Bryan, Shiloh Baptist Church.
Police say he funneled money meant for the church, into his own account.
Money like checks meant for tithe offerings, scholarship funds, and even hurricane Katrina help.
None of the Deacons KBTX spoke with say they were contacted by the Harlem church, as a reference.
Shiloh Baptist's interim pastor, Carl Idelbird says he wasn't contacted as a reference either, and doesn't know what to think about Erskine's new position.
KBTX notified Bryan Police about Erskine's whereabouts on Saturday.
Chief Ty Morrow says the District Attorney has authorized his extradition, and that Bryan Police will notify the Fugitive Task Force, as well as the FBI.
