A Staten Island company pleaded guilty Thursday to grand larceny charges for collecting money it did not earn.

Richmond Management Services admitted it collected $30,000 in fraudulent vouchers from Access-a-Ride.

Prosecutors say the company, while operating under the name Wadsworth Car Service, claimed pickups it never made.

Officials say in some cases the drivers signed the vouchers, pretending to be passengers, and one driver even handed in 10 of them in one day.

The company has been ordered to pay more than $200,000 in restitution.
