Getaway Car Parked Next to Sheriff's Department

Web Producer:  Amber Griswold

It's the same in robbery as in real estate: location, location, location.

Police in Martinsville, Indiana arrested two men for robbing a convenience store next door to the Morgan County Sheriff's Department.

Authorities received a report shortly before midnight Sunday night, that there was an armed robbery at the Big Foot store on the Indiana 39 Bypass.

One of the jailers noticed a car parked on the road, alongside the jail and shone a spotlight on the car.

Sheriff's detective Dan Riffel said someone then ran up and jumped into the car, which took off.

Two Martinsville police officers were at the jail at the time and chased the car. They stopped the car a short time later and arrested 22-year-old Scott Schaeffer of Martinsville and 20-year-old David Turner of Brazil.
