ALBION – An Albion man who was released from state prison in November after serving a sentence for third-degree burglary was arraigned on multiple charges Monday in Orleans County Court.

Henry Marling, 27, of Holley Road allegedly broke into Empire Trading on Bank Street on April 17 and stole items and damaged property, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Marling was arraigned on charges of third-degree burglary, third-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal mischief, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Marling has prior felony convictions.

“This defendant has a horrible criminal record,” Susan Howard, an assistant district attorney, told County Court Judge James Punch.

The judge set bail for Marling at $200,000.

In another case, an Albion woman was arraigned on additional charges following an arraignment on May 18 for offering a false instrument.

Elsie Biaselli, 71, of East State Street was arraigned on Monday for violating her probation and another charge of offering a false instrument.

Biaselli has a prior conviction of promoting prison contraband for allegedly smuggling illegal drugs in to inside Attica Correctional Facility, where her grandson was an inmate. Biaselli was sentenced to five years on probation in 2013.

She allegedly violated her probation by not disclosing she was a convicted felon on an application for a pistol permit. She was arraigned on May 18 for allegedly putting false information on her pistol permit application, a charge that carries a maximum of 4 years in state prison.

She was arraigned on a new charge of offering a false instrument by making a false statement for a welfare application, claiming a grandchild was a dependent who doesn’t live with her, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
