A longtime employee of a Shelbyville trucking firm and an accomplice are accused of embezzling $2 million over the past six years, police said.

Wayne Finchum, 39, of Hickerson Road, has been Titan Transfer Inc.'s vice president of maintenance for several years, Det. Lt. Brian Crews of the Shelbyville Police Department said.

Finchum and Jerry Melton Raymer, 44, of Hermitage, an employee for a Nashville company that does business with Titan, developed a scheme to defraud the firm, according to Crews.

"Finchum was working with Raymer, who was an employee of a vendor, Nashville Trailer Service, making dummy invoices," Crews said. "He would email the invoices to Finchum who would pay them using Comdata checks."
