LONGVIEW — A Longview man is behind bars after reportedly burglarizing the same store twice since August 2012. According to KETK, Russell Ray Clark, 43, was arrested after police recognized him as the suspected burglar seen in surveillance video for the two burglaries. In August, Clark is believed to have burglarized the Bar K Ranch Store on U.S. Highway 259, then again February 6. About $100 worth of cigarettes were stolen along with a change box.
On February 7th, Clark was pulled over for a routine traffic violation. The officer apparently recognized him, and found the tool they believed to have been used to break the window of the store.
Clark has been charged with four counts of theft, along with one burglary charge. His bonds total $100,000.
