Jared had no doubts about the robber's identity. "The outfit he wore in this particular surveillance video was the last outfit I saw him in," he says. "He was at a birthday party, and he was wearing the same outfit." And, according to news accounts, the gun William wielded in that video was a nickel-plated .45...a present from Garrett!

Shocked by what he had uncovered, Jared called Garrett. To make sure that Garrett was not influenced by his own suspicions, Jared simply asked his brother to look at the police website. "He immediately hung up on me," Jared recalls. "He had to deal with it in his own way."

When Clay was equally sure that the man in the photo was their father, the three brothers agreed to confront William about their suspicions. "We wanted to say, 'Look, we know what you're doing, we want it to stop, and you've got to turn yourself in,'" Jared says.

However, when they arrived, William was not at home. The brothers decided that the severity of the crimes made any delay in their action irresponsible. They contacted the local police.
