Indiana town marshal arrested following medication theft

VAN BUREN, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say an Indiana town marshal faces charges after he allegedly took medication from a home while in uniform.

State police say 49-year-old Van Buren Town Marshal Donald R. Bosley was arrested Thursday following a complaint earlier in the day. Court records don't list a lawyer for him.

A Van Buren resident told police that he installed a video surveillance system after an earlier prescription medication theft. He says on Tuesday he discovered medication missing again and a review of video surveillance determined it was taken May 31.

Police say the man recognized Bosley as the person on the video.

Van Buren is located about 65 miles (105 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis. Bosley is being held at the Grant County Jail on preliminary charges of burglary and theft.
