Elusive survivalist captured in Utah

Sanpete Sheriff's Officers escort Troy James Knapp, 45, to the Sanpete County Jail Tuesday, April 2, 2013, in Manti, Utah. Authorities on Tuesday captured Knapp, an elusive survivalist who is suspected of burglarizing Utah cabins and leaving some covered with threats and bullet holes — ending a saga that began six years ago and drew in police and residents around the state. Knapp, dubbed the "Mountain Man" by cabin owners, was taken into custody in the snowy mountains outside of Ferron in central Utah after firing several shots at officers in a helicopter, authorities said.

For six years, Troy James Knapp eluded authorities, moving from cabin to cabin across the Utah mountains, taking food and weapons and leaving notes to brag about it. The 45-year-old survivalist was finally arrested on April 2. (AP)
