(JASPER) - A French Lick man was arrested after he was caught stealing merchandise from Rural King in Jasper.

According to Jasper police, 36-year-old Curt Brinkman was found attempting to hide in the bathroom of a nearby gas station on New Year's Eve after he stole a knife and then walked out of Rural King.

Officers were called to the store just after 6 p.m. Wednesday when a Rural King employee saw Brinkman pick up a knife valued at $39.99 and then walk to the entrance of the store. When Brinkman passed the counter, the store's alarm sounded and an employee asked him to stop.

That is when Brinkman ran from the store. An employee followed him to a Circle A convenience store where Brinkman ran into the bathroom.

Officers found Brinkman hiding in the bathroom and recovered the stolen knife.

Brinkman was arrested on a felony charge of theft and was booked into the Dubois County Jail.
