Authorities say survivalist suspected of burglarizing Utah cabins, evading police is arrested

Authorities say they have arrested a survivalist suspected of burglarizing Utah cabins and evading law enforcement for years.

The Sanpete County Sheriff's Office says Troy James Knapp was taken into custody Tuesday in mountains outside of Ferron in central Utah.

Police have been tracking the 45-year-old Knapp for years and say he's been living off the comfort of cabins in winter and retreating to makeshift summer camps deep in the forest with stolen guns and supplies.

The last known time Knapp was spotted was on Oct. 1 by a surveillance camera in Sanpete County.
