After the sheriff's office was tipped, it searched Wallace's house, but failed to find him initially, the sheriff's office wrote in a Facebook post. Wallace then sent another Snapchat indicating that he was hiding in a cabinet, which led authorities to find and arrest him.

Police also arrested a woman for denying that Wallace was in the house.
