PREPARED BY DETECTIVE LIEUTENANT STEPHEN DOLLINGER

On March 16, 2011 at approximately 3:00 PM Patrolman Adam Vendetti and Patrolman Albert Scott responded to a residence on Harmony Road in reference to a report of a subject who had set the residence on fire. Upon arrival the officers found smoke coming from the residence and a fire in a bedroom.

The investigation conducted by the officers along with Detective Peter White of the Middletown Police Department and members of the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, the Middletown Fire Marshall’s Office, and the Monmouth County Fire Marshall’s Office determined that the resident, Christopher Bossick, age 31, had purposely set the house on fire in retaliation for being advised that he was about to be evicted by the property owner.

Police advise that Bossick also did considerable damage to the interior of the home utilizing power tools as well as other means prior to starting the fire.

Bossick was arrested and was charged with Aggravated Arson and three counts of Criminal Mischief. He was being held on $50,000.00 bail with no 10% option set by Judge Richard Thompson.
