At approximately 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug.
18, Robert A. Clark of Richmond, IN, had just cashed a check at the Pilot
Travel Plaza near the Whiteland exit of Interstate 65 and was in the cab of his
truck when he was approached by a man asking for help, according to a Johnson
County Sheriff’s Office report.
Clark told police he exited his truck and
followed the man to a secluded area near the back of the truck parking lot,
where he encountered two more men; one standing, one sitting.
According to the police report, one of the
standing men asked Clark how much money truck drivers made. Clark told him an
amount, and when the man didn’t believe him, he pulled the $380 cash he had
just received out of his pocket.
One of the men took the money from Clark, and
when Clark asked for it back, the man told him “You lost it.” The three men
then ran, jumped into a green Pontiac Bonneville and drove off.
Clark described all three suspects as white
males, one of whom had short, sandy-blond hair, a mustache, muscle T-shirt,
blue jeans and a black sun visor. The other two men were described as having
short blond hair and short brown hair.
