The Sheriff's Office was able to obtain a search warrant for Garcia-Soni's Great Barracuda Lane home on Hilton Head Island, as well as several warrants for his arrest, including: six counts of Sale and Distribution of Marijuana and six counts of Sale and Distribution of Marijuana within 1/2 mile of a School, Public Playground or Park—Garcia-Soni's residence is located within 1/2 mile of Barker Field.

Investigators stopped a vehicle that Garcia-Soni was an occupant in on Friday morning, where he was arrested and served with the aforementioned arrest warrants.

One of the handguns were reported as stolen, while the other handgun's serial number was destroyed.
