A former treasurer of a suburban Philadelphia fire company has been ordered to proceed to trial on charges of stealing nearly $250,000 from the department to fund a lavish lifestyle.

Sixty-two-year-old Ronald Kenneth "Ken'' Nolan waived his preliminary hearing Tuesday before District Judge Robert Sobeck of Whitpain Township. His arraignment was set for Oct. 23.
 
Nolan was treasurer of the Upper Gwynedd Township Fire Company for 24 years.
 
Montgomery County authorities say from 2006 to 2012, Nolan took cash advances from the fire department's bank account to pay for jewelry, computers, clothing, sporting events, trips to Miami, Jamaica and China and his daughter's 2006 wedding in Las Vegas, including airfare for wedding guests.
 
Defense attorney Tim Woodward has said his client was "deeply regretful for his behavior.''
