NEWARK - The former treasurer of the volunteer fire department in central New Jersey has admitted embezzling at least $89,000.

Craig Snediker pleaded guilty in federal court on Wednesday to wire fraud.

The 40-year-old Monroe Township resident admitted withdrawing funds from North Brunswick Volunteer Fire Department Number 3 to pay personal expenses.

Snediker faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he's sentenced in December.
