NEWPORT TOWNSHIP -- A former township manager in Luzerne County pleaded guilty to stealing from the township.
Richard Zika, the former township manager for Newport Township, pleaded guilty Tuesday to stealing $160,000 from the municipality.
A township audit last year turned up the missing money.
Zika told police he was having money troubles.
He's already paid back more than $100,000 in restitution to Newport Township.
He is scheduled to be sentenced in June.
