Pastor accused of theft, impersonating marshal

DENVER (AP) -

A Colorado pastor has been accused of luring a man to a Denver motel by first offering sex and then claiming to be a U.S. marshal while handcuffing and robbing the victim.

Police say 43-year-old Michael Todd Abromovich stole a computer and iPad from the victim before releasing him.

Set Free God's House ministry in Colorado Springs says Abromovich served as a pastor there for more than a year, preaching, teaching Bible class and fundraising.

He was arrested in Phoenix last week and was extradited to Denver on charges of kidnapping, theft and impersonating an officer. He hasn't entered a plea. Court records don't indicate whether he has an attorney.

Abromovich also faces a theft charge in the Colorado Springs area. Details weren't immediately available.

KCNC-TV in Denver first reported the arrest.
