Truth Table, Help!

I have a problem and I need to solve it, thank you from now..

An enormous amount of loot had been stolen from a store. The criminal (or criminals) took the heist away in a car. Three well-known criminals, A, B, and C, were brought to the police station for questioning. The following facts were determined:

1) No one other than A,B, or C was involved in the robbery.

2) C never pulls a job with using A and (possibly others) as an accomplice.

3) B does not know how to drive

Use truth table to determine if A is innocent or guilty?

This problem only makes sense if you meant
2) C never pulls a job without using A (and possibly others) as an accomplice.

In that case, since "B does not know how to drive", B could not have done it alone. It could only be
all three of ABC, or AB, or BC, or A alone, or C alone. Because "C never pulls a job without A", both
BC" and "C alone" are impossible. That leaves "all three of ABC", or "AB", or "AC" or "A alone", all of which involve A.

I dont know if its with or without but this is not an answer for this question. question is making a truth table about A
