The posse captures Ben and the man who shot the sheriff. The farm owner, a friend of the sheriff, implicates Ben in the crime because Ben worked on the getaway motorcycles just before the incident. When the sheriff dies Ben is charged with the murder, which temporarily keeps him out of Fletcher's hands.
