Police arrested a Columbus, Ind., man a few feet from the Seymour convenience store he is accused of robbing Christmas morning. Rex A. Clark, 24, was arrested about 8:30 a.m. Monday by Master Trooper Tommy L. Walker Jr. and Trooper David Owsley, of the Indiana State Police Seymour District, who found Clark sitting inside a stalled vehicle in front of the Tobacco Road store on Ind. 11. The troopers were responding to an activated burglar alarm at the store. There, they found that the front door window had been smashed. Clark initially told police the broken window was someone elses fault and that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, authorities said. Further investigation found that Clark allegedly stole the vehicle from Columbus, drove to the store to break into it and steal multiple items, including lottery tickets, cash and pills, police said.
