Employee scams church

An investigation is underway into embezzlement accusations at a Mid-South church.

A spokesperson for Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church says the church recently hired a man to sell some of the church's equipment on Ebay.

A few weeks later, 33-hundred dollars was reported missing from the church's Paypal account.

The former employee admitted to using some of the money to pay for his 624 dollar personal cellphone bill.

The church filed a report Saturday with the Memphis Police Economic Crimes Division.
