Authorities tracing phone of mountain man's familyUtah authorities tracing family phone of mountain man sought in cabin burglaries
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ' Authorities are using a court order to determine if a serial cabin burglar in the southern Utah wilderness is using a cell phone to call his family.
The court order allows authorities to track calls made to and by a couple in their 60s ' Bruce and Barbara Knapp of Moscow, Idaho.
They are relatives of the Utah fugitive, 44-year-old Troy James Knapp. Messages left by The Associated Press with the couple and other family members in Michigan have not been returned.
Utah authorities say Troy Knapp has been linked by surveillance cameras and fingerprints to cabin break-ins around Zion National Park, stretching back five or more years. An arrest warrant issued by Kane County authorities charges Knapp with three burglaries and a weapons charge.
