Pastor freed after court appearance

A Spokane church pastor accused of stealing prescription medication from a parishioner left jail this weekend and will remain free pending trial, after he appeared before a Superior Court judge Monday.

Greg Scott Glover, 35, was arrested Friday after a Spokane Valley police detective hid in the victim’s home as Glover stole hydrocodone pills, police said.

Glover, pastor of ConnectPoint Church, 1316 N. Lincoln St., is to be arraigned Nov. 8 on two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Glover, who was accompanied by his wife, declined comment.

Police say Glover was arrested during an undercover sting with 14 pills – the exact amount missing from the woman’s supply. The woman said she suspected Glover had been stealing 45 to 60 pills a month for about six months.
