(FRANKFORT) - A former central Indiana police officer has pleaded guilty to charges that he stole nearly $150,000 from a company for which he transported cash.

Former Frankfort police Lt. Randy Emery avoided jail time as a judge sentenced him to three years of probation and ordered him to pay $110,000 in restitution.

Emery was arrested in February on charges he 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.

The Times of Frankfort reports Emery told the judge he used the money to support a gambling addiction for which he's since sought treatment.

Police Chief Troy Bacon tells the Journal & Courier that Emery is keeping his pension because his retirement halted the department's internal investigation.
