This case was investigated by the Department of Homeland Security, the Sioux Falls Police Department, the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office, and the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.

Fields was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
