HEMPSTEAD (WABC) -- A Hempstead man will be arraigned on burglary charges, in connection with several church thefts.

On one occasion he's accused of taking clothing and stealing a large screen television from St. Aidan's Church in Williston Park last March.

Alvarado is charged with six counts of burglary.
