Later that same day, the Osakis Police Department informed the local sheriff’s office that they had located the car and a man who was acting erratically and attempting to put gas in the vehicle. The man was identified as Clermont and arrested. He claimed another man had driven the vehicle, but officers found the key to the vehicle in his pocket when he was searched at the jail. He was later identified as the person who took the vehicle in a photo lineup by one of the relatives.
