MEDIA, Pa. - August 21, 2009 The Delaware County District Attorney's office says 68-year-old
Glenolden Mayor Theodore Bathurst defrauded customers over a
nine-year period. Authorities say Bathurst paid operating expenses
using money from a fund customers could pay into in advance.
Bathurst was arraigned Friday. He faces a total of 114 charges
including theft by deception and receiving stolen property.
Following his arraignment, Bathurst said he was sorry but would not
say whether he would step down as mayor.
Glenolden solicitor Mike Puppio said in a statement the charges
have nothing to do with Bathurst's duties as mayor and he has no
control over borough finances.
Bathurst sold the funeral home in 2007.
