A Northampton County borough official is heading to trial on theft charges.

Wilson borough clerk Lisa Guth waived her preliminary hearing Thursday morning.

Police said they questioned Guth after discovering a number of discrepancies on several residential sewer bills.

Officials said $2,600 was missing, and they said Guth later admitted to taking the money.

She's been on administrative leave since June.
