For six years, Troy James Knapp

eluded authorities, moving from cabin to cabin across the 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.
