READING, Pa. - February 27, 2014

Police say six employees of the Reading Parking Authority stole $72,000 from the agency by skimming from the fees collected at parking garages.

Authorities launched a sting operation after they found discrepancies in collection figures for events at the Santandare Arena and the Performing Arts Center.

Police say the employees collected cash from drivers but only turned over part of the earnings.
