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.
