Huntington man faces burglary charges

by Andrew Maciejewski - amaciejewski@h-ponline.com

Police arrested a Huntington man last week for his alleged connection to a couple of burglaries that occurred earlier this year, according to police and court records.

Cameron Allen Bostic, 22, was taken into custody July 1 and faces two Level 4 Felony counts of burglary and two Class A Misdemeanor counts of theft, according to court documents.

The courts issued a warrant for his arrest June 14, after authorities found probable cause that Bostic committed two separate burglaries on January 12 and January 30 in 2018.

On January 12, officers responded to a burglary call where a man and woman broke in through a garage window and stole gaming systems, video game memorabilia and more than a hundred of video games, according to police reports. Police say the owner had installed a video camera after her residence had been burglarized multiple times in the past.

Police were able to identify Bostic after reviewing the video, and the owner said Bostic had been at the residence before while dating her ex-roommate.

On January 30, police responded to another burglary call at the same address. This time the intruder broke the rear door to get in before stealing more items.

Police obtained a search warrant for 617 S. Jefferson St. after police identified a stolen item in Bostic’s car, which was parked at the house. Upon searching the residence, police found “hundreds if not thousands of video games,” according to police reports, and Bostic led police around the house showing them the stolen items from the recent burglaries. Police also located stolen items reported in 2017.

In their investigation, police allegedly found that Bostic made trips to “Game Stop and Disc Replay in Fort Wayne and or Indianapolis” and sold numerous games and gaming systems after each reported burglary.

Bond is set at $25,000. Bostic is currently being held at the Huntington County Jail, as of deadline Saturday.

Bostic’s next appearance in court is scheduled for August 27 at 8:30 a.m.
