MARINETTE, Wis. (AP) – A former treasurer for the Wausaukee Rescue Squad has been ordered to stand trial on charges she stole money from the agency. Forty-one-year-old Amanda Stumbris waived her right to a preliminary hearing in court Monday. Prosecutors say she embezzled more than $132,000 over three years. According to the criminal complaint, Stumbris used a rescue squad debit card to make cash withdrawals. She also allegedly purchased satellite television service and movies. Investigators say she also covered gambling expenses. WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/Pyp4fv ) reports Stumbris is due back in court to enter a plea to the felony theft charges on Dec. 14.
A call left for Stumbris’ defense attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday.
