FOX 8 received this news release from the St. Bernard Sheriff's Office Wednesday afternoon:

A 36-year-old Chalmette man, out on bond for two other recent arrests including a burglary where he left his apartment key at the scene and one for drugs, was arrested for the early Easter morning armed robbery of a service station in which an employee was threatened with a rifle, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Robert Clark III, Culotta St., was arrested at his apartment late Tuesday night, April 2, and a crack pipe was recovered in a search authorized by a judge, the sheriff said.

Clark was booked with the 3:25 a.m. armed robbery of a Shell service station at Judge Perez at Perez Road on March 31 and he and Jaime Schlosser, 37, who lives with him, were both booked with possession of drug paraphernalia for the pipe possession.

Both are being held in St. Bernard Parish Prison.

Both had been booked with burglary of a Chalmette bar in mid-February after their apartment key was found there after the burglary and along with other evidence led to them, Sheriff Pohlmann said. Clark was also arrested in early March for illegal possession of prescription medication.

In the latest arrest, Sheriff Pohlmann said, sheriff's detectives, commanded by Maj. Robert McNab, developed information which led to Clark as the armed robber, who wore a mask and distinctive clothing while carrying a rifle. Neither the gun nor a mask have been recovered.

The S.O. also released surveillance video from the robbery.
