Bond revoked for Memphis minister in fraud case

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A Baptist minister in Memphis is in custody after his bond was revoked in a fraud case.

Federal prosecutors say minister Steve Young of Ardmore Terrace Baptist Church in Frayser was taken into custody Thursday to protect the public from additional acts of fraud.

Young pleaded guilty last September to wire fraud and was out on bond pending sentencing.

Authorities say Young had obtained mortgages on residential properties using the identities of church members without their knowledge.
