ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – A pastor from Red Wing, Minn., was cited for allegedly exchanging money for sex with an undercover police officer, St. Paul Police say.

According to police, Gary Elg, 60, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Red Wing was charged with a misdemeanor after allegedly engaging in prostitution on July 24 in St. Paul.

Elg resigned from his position on July 26, the Republican Eagle newspaper in Red Wing said.

“I have failed you as a pastor and a friend,” Elg was quoted as saying in a letter sent out to church members. “I have crossed some serious ethical and moral boundaries.”
