By Pattie Price

Michael Aquilino, 30, of Marple, was held in abstentia Thursday by Magisterial District Judge Lee Hunter, for a March 8 arraignment in Common Pleas Court on the charges of receiving stolen property, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct. The charges stem from an incident 10p.m., Dec. 11, at 100 Media Line Road, Newtown, Delaware County, Pa.
According to the affidavit, Newtown Officer Dan Dougherty investigated a report of an intoxicated man staggering in traffic and causing a hazard. He located Aquilino on the steps of the Messiah Lutheran Church. When police approached Aquilino he gave them the middle finger and mumbled. Aquilino had a strong odor of alcohol and was unable to stand without assistance.
Police confiscated five 1999 American Eagle silver dollars, eight gold earrings, a silver ring, a red pouch with the name “Frank” containing rosary beads, and three men’s shirts on hangers.
A portable breath test revealed a blood alcohol level of .197 percent.
The following day, police were able to determine that the items were reported stolen from a home in Marple. The homeowner confirmed Aquilino was at his residence.
