MORGAN TOWNSHIP | Porter County police are investigating the theft of nearly $147,000 from the A&M Farm Center, 300 South Ind. 49.

Company officials reported to police Wednesday that they began an investigation into their accounts after finding those accounts were not balancing and cash was missing.

Business owner Mark Abbett told police when the accountant started looking at the books in September 2012, the accountant found a large amount of money missing, dating back to December 2011. The total missing was $146,931.

Abbett further told police, according to the report, that he suspected a longtime employee of the theft and that he had fired the employee last month.
