East Huntingdon man charged with theft of $1,300 from W.Va. woman
An East Huntingdon man is facing charges for allegedly taking a $1,300 payment for a rental property and failing to follow through with an agreement to move a woman into the township property from West Virginia.
John E. Aguilar, 68, of 202 Lucas Pipeline Road, is charged with theft, receiving stolen property and misapplication of entrusted property, according to a criminal complaint filed by state police.
He allegedly agreed in July to rent a house at 262 Lucas Pipeline Road to a 41-year-old West Virginia woman. She sent Aguilar a money order for $1,300 to secure the property with the stipulation that he would help her move to Pennsylvania.
Police said Aguilar deposited the money order into his checking account, but failed to assist in the move. He has refused to reimburse the victim, police said.
A summons has been issued. A June 5 preliminary hearing before District Judge Charles Moore is scheduled.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
