FRANKFORT, Indiana — Authorities say a central Indiana police officer faces charges that he stole nearly $150,000 from a company that he worked for part time.
State police investigators arrested Frankfort police Lt. Randy Emery at his home Tuesday on a felony charge of theft.
State police Sgt. Kim Riley says the investigation found that Emery stole at least $147,000 from Good Oil Co., which had hired him to transport cash from a gas station near Frankfort to a bank.
Riley says the money had been taken from the Winamac-based company since last summer.
Frankfort Police Chief Troy Bacon says the city's Board of Public Works and Safety will soon review Emery's status.
Emery has been released on bail from the Clinton County Jail. It wasn't immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
