MOORHEAD, Minn. (KFGO-AM) Moorhead police are investigating the embezzlement of a large amount of money from a local car dealer.
Court documents obtained by KFGO News say more than $300,000 is missing from "The Big Lot" at 2500 2nd Avenue North. A search warrant affidavit indicates two of the Big Lot's managers were involved.
The company's controller told police it appears the thefts began in 2007, when she began noticing unusual and fictitious transactions. The affidavit also says one of managers admitted his responsibility and told police he has a gambling problem. Another manager admitted his knowledge of the thefts, but never reported them.
The investigation remains open. Charges have not been filed.
