During the lunch hour at school, a group of five boys from Miss Jones home room visited a nearby lunch wagon. one of the five boys took a candy bar without paying for it. When the boys were questioned by the school principal, they made the following statements in respective order: 

1. Rex: "Neither Earl nor I did it." 

2. Jack: "It was Rex or Abe." 

3. Abe: "Both Rex and Jack are lying." 

4. Dan: "Abe's statement is not true; one of them is lying and the other is speaking the truth." 

5. Earl: "What Dan said is wrong." 

When Miss Jones was consulted, she said, "Three of these boys are always truthful, but everything that two of them say will be a lie." Assuming that Miss Jones is correct, can you determine who took the candy bar?
