TROY, Mich. -

A Catholic priest accused of embezzling from a Troy church now faces even more scrutiny for purchasing a $500,000 condo.

Father Edward Belczak was removed from his post at St. Thomas More last week while he is accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the church. 

Now, a church employee is no longer employed with St. Thomas More after selling her $500,000 condo to the pastor.

Records show the condo in Florida was purchased in 2005 by Belczak from former church administrator Janice Verschuren.  It's unclear how Belczak paid for the home.

Belczak is under investigation, accused of embezzling $429,000 from the church.
