Employee accused of stealing $68K+ from Michigan car dealership

A man is accused of writing numerous checks to himself when he worked at a car dealership in northern Michigan.

Police say Betten Baker Chevrolet-Buick of Cadillac was reviewing records when a $1,125.68 check written to Steven Michael Garrod was discovered. The dealership believed one of the checks was forged because it was company policy to have two signatures on checks.

This led to an investigation, which found additional checks written to 35-year-old Garrod totaling more than $68,000.
