PITTSBURGH (AP) - The former manager of a tiny Pittsburgh suburb has pleaded guilty to theft by deception for collecting nearly $231,000 in unauthorized salaries.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1MhXN9D ) reports 45-year-old Mathew Galla entered the plea Thursday in Allegheny County.

Prosecutors say he stole the money from Munhall during a three-year stint as assistant borough manager and, eventually, borough manager.

Galla illegally took $230,784 in pay that wasn’t authorized by the borough’s council.

A judge ordered Galla jailed until he’s sentenced Oct. 5 and refused to release him on bond so he can visit his sick mother in Riverside, California.

Galla was arrested at Pittsburgh International Airport on a bench warrant on Wednesday upon his arrival from California. Galla had mixed up the dates and missed his scheduled court appearance on Tuesday.
