Evansville police are investigating a report of embezzlement at a local car dealership that might total more than $500,000.

Magna Motors, on Division Street in Evansville, says two employees sold vehicles to other people and were paid off — making themselves a profit while the dealership either lost money or didn’t make very much.

Magna Motors believes this had been going on since last year and they have transaction records showing the losses.

So far no charges have been filed in this case.
