A Bath man faces several burglary and theft charges following his arrest Thursday at his home on Floral Street.

John Foster, 31, was charged in multiple incidents, police said. Bath police were notified that a car window was smashed and items taken from a vehicle at the Cabin Restaurant on Thursday afternoon. Police identified a vehicle seen leaving the area, a 2007 Hyundai, which turned out to be registered to Foster.

Police learned he was wanted on four warrants from Portland charging burglary and theft, police said.

Shortly after the Bath car burglary, Foster cashed a check stolen from the car at a local bank, police said.

Police also matched Foster to images taken by Walmart security of a person using credit cards stolen in car burglaries the previous week in Bath, police said.

Police recovered stolen property at Foster’s apartment and are now working with police in Portland and Brunswick to find the owners and determine how many charges Foster faces.

Foster is being held at Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset without bail pending a court date.

Police said they believe Foster was stealing to support a drug habit.
