PORT CARBON, Pa. — Brenda S. Shuman, who prosecutors allege stole more than $50,000 from the Minersville fire company and EMS service for which she worked, must appear in Schuylkill County Court after waiving her right to a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.

Magisterial District Judge David A. Plachko bound over for court seven counts each of theft by deception, theft of lost property, theft and access device fraud and two of forgery against Shuman, 47, of Jones-town, after the defendant waived her right to the hearing.
