Sharon Park Drive in Folcroft, took the first rifle from the station

missing on March 3 and notified Darby Township Police Chief Leonard
McDevitt Jr. The department subsequently noticed the second rifle
missing later that day.McDevitt contacted county detectives
Robert Lythgoe and Thomas Worrilow, of the county’s Special
Investigation Division, who began an investigation.Fiscaro initially tried to pin the blame on another individual, but later owned up to the theft, according to the affidavit.Under
the plea agreement negotiated by Assistant District Attorney Thomas
Lawrie and defense counsel William Davis, Fiscaro will serve 15 weekends
at the county prison in Concord and pay $1,100 in restitution.Judge James Pagano also sentenced Fiscaro to one year of concurrent probation.
