A Madison man was charged with burglary after police found multiple stolen items in his home after tracing the use of a stolen credit card.

Michael Maglaras, 25, was charged after police searched his residence and discovered stolen items.

According to a press release from Somerset County Sheriff Dale Lancaster, officers responded to a burglary at T.R. Dillon Logging on Main Street in November 2017. The victim reported the business had been broken into, and two laptops and a television worth approximately $2,000 were reported stolen. The victim later reported a credit card was also stolen. Damage done to the building at the time of the burglary was estimated at $3,000.

At first deputies could not find a suspect during their investigation. However, they discovered the credit card was being used at several local businesses and were able to locate a suspect and obtain a search warrant.

On Tuesday, May 15, authorities executed a search warrant at 32 Hayden St. in Madison, where Maglaras lived. During the search, authorities found a computer, the television, and numerous credit cards, debit cards, gas cards and checks.

Additional charges may be filed once the case is reviewed by the Somerset County District Attorney’s Office.

Maglaras is scheduled to appear in the Somerset County Unified Court on August 15.
