“Mountain Man” burglary suspect may take plea deal
ST. GEORGE — “Mountain Man” burglary suspect Troy Knapp may take a plea deal in a hearing scheduled next month.
Court records indicate that Troy James Knapp is scheduled for a change of plea hearing on April 7 in a federal courtroom here. Knapp is facing assault and weapons charges after he was indicted by a federal grand jury last year.
Knapp was arrested last year after police say he eluded them for months. A suspect in dozens of cabin burglaries across Utah, the sightings of the solitary man and his ability to stay on the run earned him the nickname “Mountain Man.”
