Polygamist arrested

San Diego Union-Tribune

LAS VEGAS - The leader of a polygamist sect who was on the FBI's Most Wanted List was found with cell phones, laptop computers, wigs and more than $50,000 in cash when he was arrested, authorities said Tuesday.

Warren Steed Jeffs, 50, was arrested without incident, and no weapons were found when he and two others were pulled for a traffic stop late Monday and taken into custody, said FBI special agent in charge Steven Martinez.

Jeffs faces sexual misconduct charges for allegedly arranging marriages between underage girls and older men.

He was stopped in a 2007 red Cadillac Escalade by a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper on Interstate 15 just north of Las Vegas and was being held Tuesday in Clark County jail.

I hope he gets to be in a harem in prison. The wig oughta come in handy.


A red Escalade, huh? Gotta keep my eye on this site.
