A short time after the theft, Heuber was at Ascension Lutheran Church on Maynard Avenue, where he allegedly took a RCA computer tablet from the children's ministry room and keys to a Town and Country minivan from a coat that was hanging on a rack, records state.

Another person allegedly caught him rummaging through the van, and Huebner fled in the Malibu.

The following day, Worth County authorities found the Malibu in the parking lot of the Diamond Joe Casino in Northwood. Huebner was detained at the scene. He was also arrested in connection with a 1004 Chevrolet Impala that was taken from a home in Joice and later found parked at an agricultural co-op in Joice, according to court records.
