ITHACA, N.Y. — A man was taken into custody Monday after he was found inside his ex-girlfriend’s home in the town of Ithaca, police said.

Officials were called around 7:55 p.m. to a home on Warren Road after receiving a call that Michael A. Delario was inside a woman’s home despite an order of protection, a news release from the New York State Police says. 

The 57-year-old man was taken into custody and charged with felonies for second-degree burglary and first-degree criminal contempt, as well as a misdemeanor for second-degree obstruction of governmental administration.

Police said the criminal contempt charge is categorized as a felony because Delario had a prior conviction for the same charge within the last five years. During processing, he also refused to provide a DNA sample as required by law.

Delario was arraigned in the town of Dryden court and was remanded to the Tompkins County jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 property bond.

He’s scheduled to appear in the town of Dryden court Wednesday.
