NORTHFIELD - The police are searching for a 45-year-old church volunteer who is wanted on charges that he sexually assaulted several girls and stole church money.

Scott Nash, previously of 20 Summer St., was the senior warden at the Trinity Episcopal Church in Tilton. He is wanted on two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, one count of felonious sexual assault and one count of theft.

Nash was previously convicted of stealing money from an employer and served time in jail.

The alleged assaults occurred over the past year, some of them at Nash's Summer Street residence, according to Northfield Police Chief Scott Hilliard. He has since been evicted.

A member of the church for five years, Nash was one of two youth ministers. He also performed secretarial duties as a paid part-time administrator, according to the Rev. Tim Rich of the Episcopal Diocese.
