The investigation was turned over to the Criminal Investigations/School Safety Bureau. As the investigation continue, and evidence was gathered in the case, it was determined that Garrison stole one pickup truck while Todd stole the other pickup truck. Both subjects rammed the gates of Pioneer Water as they left the property.
Clark, Jr. was charged as he provided transportation to Garrison and Todd, knowing that a crime was going to be committed. After the crime was committed, Clark, Jr. benefitted personally from the crime.
