According to court records, Cavender was arrested in the morning hours of August 29, 2019 by the Casper Police Department. At the time, a CPD affidavit filed in the case accused Cavender of breaking into a locked vehicle and stealing a Kimber KS6 .357 revolver.

Cavender was also charged with crimes relating to a July 20th incident, where a juvenile was beaten and robbed while being video recorded by other individuals. In that instance, Mills Police say that a man matching Cavender’s description could be seen in the video removing the victim’s belt, while the victim was kicked in the head by another assailant.

As of September 5, 2019, Kooper Cavender was listed as being in the custody of the Natrona County Detention Center, with a cash or surety bond amount of $10,000.
