Helena-West Helena Police Department officers and Phillips County Sheriff’s Office deputies executed a search warrant on the house. They found Gamble inside the house with Rohrscheib, determined the kidnapping was a hoax and arrested the two.

Gamble was charged with filing a false report, possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance, fleeing, defective equipment, driving on a suspended driver’s license, careless and prohibited driving and three counts of failure to stop at a stop sign. Some of the charges are a result of the traffic stop that he took off from.
