Authorities’ ‘bait car’ aids in arrestApril 22, 2020
From Local Sources
CHARLESTOWN — A Jeffersonville man was arrested after theft of items from a “bait car” at Charlestown State Park in Clark County.
Aaron Wallen, 47, faces charges of theft, in addition to outstanding arrest warrants, after Department of Natural Resources conservation officers witnessed him stealing items from a parked vehicle near a trailhead at the state park Tuesday afternoon.
In response to multiple reports of thefts from unattended parked cars at the state park during the past week, conservation officers and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office set up and observed a “bait car.”
Shortly after 1:30 p.m., authorities said, a conservation officer observed Wallen open the unlocked door of the car and remove items. After a conservation officer made contact, Wallen fled on foot into the woods but was apprehended shortly thereafter and arrested without incident.
It was later determined that Wallen was on parole and had multiple outstanding felony arrest warrants, authorities said.
