When officers arrived on the scene, the four ducks quite clearly resisted arrest and Kat, a member of staff at the stop described the sight to The Dodo:

They were being chased by one of the police officers. They were chasing them around the car. I thought it was pretty funny, to be honest.

As soon as the police managed to secure the unexpected loiterers, they set about getting them down to the station. Officer Sheehan of the Great Bend Police Department managed to usher the quartet into the back of the police car, ready to bring them in.Upon arrival, Oseki was alerted to her delinquent ducks. She described her surprise to local news station WNEP 16:

I thought it was funny, I'm like 'are you serious?' There were like 'yeah we took them' because I guess people were trying to take my ducks, and everyone was feeding them, even the cop fed them bread. It's just one Fourth of July no one will ever forget.
