More Charges Filed Against Fugitive Mountain Man in So. Utah

Oct 15, 2012

Using fingerprints and photos taken by motion activated wildlife cameras, authorities identified Troy James Knapp, a 45-year-old burglary fugitive from California, as the man responsible for a string of mountain cabin burglaries in southern Utah.

Kane County filed charges against Knapp earlier this year. Now Iron County has issued charges of its own, including four felony counts of burglary.

Recent incidents point o Knapp migrating northward. Over the summer a rash of cabin burglaries in Sevier County emerged fitting Knapp's profile. On October 1, yet more photographic evidence placed Knapp at a cabin burglary in Sanpete County.

Authorities warn that Knapp is armed and may be dangerous if approached.
