How was william successful in plotting aganist Silas marner?

William Dane was an extremely manipulative and conniving character who would not refrain from resorting to the pits of human depravity in order to acquire what he wanted. Although he was Silas' friend, their shared religious views and feelings serving as common ground for their friendship, he did not refrain from harming Silas. Dane's religious views went so far as they would benefit him directly. It was when he saw an opportunity to acquire material gains that Dane had a pile of money stolen from the church, got Silas implicated in the case and ran off with Silas' partner. This left Silas to deal with the aftermath of the crime although he had not been involved in any of it.
