PIQUA — A Piqua man spent the night in jail after being picked up on two outstanding warrants.

Robert C. Foster, 34, was charged with second-degree felony burglary in January 2016 in Troy, and first-degree misdemeanor receiving stolen property in April 2015 in Piqua.

According to Miami County Municipal Court records, Foster is suspected of breaking into a residence on the 1100 block of South Crawford Street in Troy in June 2015 and stealing a laptop. There was damage reportedly done to the residence. A warrant for his arrest was later filed in January.

In Piqua, Foster is accused of being in possession of a stolen PlayStation. According to court records, Foster reportedly sold a PlayStation to Cashland with a serial number matching the one reported stolen. The incident originally took place in August 2014. Foster was charged in April 2015, and a warrant was filed for his arrest in June 2015.

Foster was released on his own recognizance on Monday. His next court date is scheduled for July 19.
