The live-in caretaker of a western Pennsylvania mansion is facing criminal charges for allegedly drinking more than $100,000 worth of the owner's whiskey.

Scottdale police have charged 62-year-old John Saunders with receiving stolen property and theft.

Police tell The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the owner found nine cases of whiskey hidden in the walls and stairwell of the century-old mansion built by industrialist J.P. Brennan. The whiskey was bottled in 1912 by the nearby West Overton Distilling Co.

Investigators say Saunders drank 52 bottles of whiskey :wacko: valued at $102,400 by a New York auction house. A phone listing for him could not be located Friday.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
