LAPORTE, Ind.,--- A former LaPorte police officer who was treasurer/secretary of the local fraternal order of police is due in court Wednesday for an initial hearing on charges he stole $7,462.

The LaPorte County Herald-Argus reports 32-year-old Mark Bishop is charged with theft. He could not be reached for comment because there was no telephone listing for him. Bishop resigned from the police department on April 15.

State police allege he used the money for Chicago Cubs tickets, at a Kokomo strip club, casinos and hotels. In resigning as FOP treasurer/secretary Bishop admitted to using its bank card for personal use and said he intends to repay the money.
