ROYALTON — Two Luzerne County Transit Authority executives will stand trial on charges they padded ridership numbers to get more state money.

A district judge in Dauphin County ruled Thursday morning that there is enough evidence to send the case against Stanley Strelish and Robb Henderson to Trial.

All charges against Strelish were sent to trial.

Henderson was also ordered to stand trial for all but three charges against him.

The men are accused of inflating the number of senior riders on Luzerne County buses — so-called ghost riders — bilking the state out of more than $3 million.
