Van Buren Town Marshal Arrested on Burglary Charge


Detectives from the Indiana State Police in Peru have arrested the Van Buren Town Marshal, 49-year-old Donald R. Bosley, following a complaint filed by a Van Buren resident earlier this afternoon.

Preliminary investigation by Detective Josh Rozzi indicates that the victim in this case had prescription medication taken from his home at a point earlier this year by an unknown person or persons.  As a result, the victim installed a video surveillance system in his home.

This past Tuesday, July 3, the victim was looking for his prescription medication and once again, it was missing.  He reviewed his video surveillance system and found that on May 31, a man who he recognized as Bosley had entered his home, in full police uniform, and allegedly took the medication.

The victim contacted the State Police in Peru this afternoon and after an initial investigation, Bosley was arrested without incident and incarcerated in the Grant County Jail on the following preliminary charges:

  • Burglary, Level 4 Felony
  • Theft, Class A Misdemeanor
