Former Van Buren town marshal pleads guilty to pain medication theft

A former Indiana town marshal is pleading guilty after authorities alleged he broke into the home of a local elected official and stole pain medication while still wearing his police uniform.

The Marion Chronicle-Tribune reports that 49-year-old former Van Buren Town Marshal Donald R. Bosley pleaded guilty last week to theft and felony burglary charges in Grant Circuit Court.

Bosley admitted during the hearing on Dec. 19 that he entered the home of Van Buren Town Council President Tony Manry in May and stole the medication.

He was arrested in July after a home surveillance system captured him taking the drugs.

Bosley is under house arrest until sentencing. He could face two to 10 years in prison.

Van Buren is located about 65 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
