Bowling Green police say the general manager of Ponderosa Steak House on Scottsville Road, is suspected of embezzling more than $95,000 from the business over the past 12 months. According to police, the co-owners of Ponderosa confronted the general manager with proof of his crime, at which time he confessed to stealing the money.

Two former assistants say they were aware the general manager was taking the money, but they didn't know how. Police say the co-owners have fired the general manager, but no charges have yet been filed.
