James Bostic, 42, of Bayonne, is charged with two counts of burglary, theft, and eight warrants for contempt, according to Police Capt. Eric Amato.

Bostic was taken into custody at 9:24 a.m. yesterday from his residence after being identified as the suspect who committed burglary and theft incidents in the past.

On September 19th, at 6:35 a.m., officers responded to the area of 7th Street and Humphrey Avenue on a report of a parked minivan with a broken window and opened door.

After observing the interior to be in disarray and apparently burglarized, the officers made contact with the owner who confirmed that the vehicle had been burglarized and damaged by an unknown individual overnight.

On September 25th at 11:15 a.m, a 25-year-old male victim responded to headquarters to report a burglary and theft.

According to the victim, an unknown person entered the enclosed porch of his residence located in the area of 23rd Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard and stole his $950 e-bike.

The Bayonne Police Detective Bureau initiated an investigation into the incidents and identified Bostic as the burglar.

On September 27th, detectives responded to his residence, located Bostic, and placed him under arrest.

While on scene, they also observed the stolen e-bike inside of the residence. During the arrest process, it was also confirmed that Bostic was wanted on eight warrants issued out of the Atlantic County Superior Court, authorities said.
