DEJA VU: On Parole For Robbing 7-Eleven Store, Man Is Arrested...For Robbing The Same Store (Again)

A parolee—free since September after serving 3 years in prison for robbing the 7-Eleven store at 3801 N. Western in 2012—is back in jail after allegedly robbing the 7-Eleven store at 3801 N. Western this week.

Clark A. Garrett is charged with one count of aggravated robbery while indicating presence of a firearm in connection with the hold-up shortly before 1 o'clock Monday morning.

Responding officers found Garrett kneeling in the parking lot of a nearby pizza restaurant minutes later. They found a toy gun in a nearby trash can, police said.

Bail is set at $350,000.

State records show that Garrett was paroled on September 9 after serving half of a 6-year prison sentence that he received for robbing the same 7-Eleven store at 1:30AM on August 21, 2012. He received 2 years for another robbery in 2009, although one that did not involve the 7-11 store.

  1. Back to his homies in the pen for Christmas. After three years he missed them. Next time out Clark why not start working at a 7-11? The life of crime doesn't seem to be working out for you.

  3. I'd think he'd get at least five years for this when you include at least a year for the parole violation. Anyone have any idea?

  5. Not because this is the most brazen robbery, can CWB let readers know who the judges are who issue probation or supervision for crimes worthy of jail time. When I go to the polls, I see these judges names, yet I don't know how they do their jobs. I just want a little knowledge and maybe they will feel accountable to the taxpayers who give them the right to judge on our behalf.

  7. Criminal vendetta here, same reason why any officer tells attempted burglary victims that the criminal is likely to return to finish the job.

  8. Prison must be nicer than the prospect of being self sufficient for these losers.

  9. Maybe next time he will rob a store when the other person is armed and this will be the end of our paying for his incarceration.

  10. And can you believe the store got robbed again the other night?
    Cash and cigarettes implied he had a gun, but not seen.
    This is becoming a regular thing and so close to belmont and western station.
