Warrant Arrest - James Hill, a 54 year old South Orange resident, was arrested on Wednesday, March 15, at approximately 7:30 p.m. for several, outstanding out-of-state arrest warrants. An off-duty South Orange Police Department officer, familiar with the BOLO for the subject, observed Hill get into his vehicle while it was parked in front of a store on Irvington Ave.  Police units immediately responded to the area and arrested Hill without further incident.  After being processed at headquarters, police transported Hill to the County Jail in preparation for extradition.

Collectively, numerous pieces of electronic equipment (various video game consoles, controllers, and video games), headphones as well as some other personal items were reported stolen. It appears the actor entered through a bathroom window and most likely exited through the front door. The Detective Bureau is investigating the incident.
