During lunch at school, a group of five boys from Miss Smith's home room visited a nearby canteen. One of the five boys took a candy bar without paying for it. When the boys were questioned by the school principal, they made the following statements in respective order:

1. Chris: "Neither Austin nor I did it."

2. Kraig: "It was Chris or Mark."

3. Mark: "Both Chris and Kraig are lying."

4. Gavin: "Between Chris and Kraig, one of them is lying and the other is speaking the truth."

5. Austin: "What Gavin said is wrong."

When Miss Smith was consulted, she said, "Three of these boys are always truthful, but everything that two of them say will be a lie." Assuming that Miss Smith is correct, can you determine who took the candy bar?
