Fugitive FLDS defendant in food stamp fraud arrested in South Dakota

A fugitive polygamous congregational leader who escaped federal custody amid court proceedings over a large-scale church-organized food stamp fraud has been arrested in South Dakota a year after his disappearance from the Salt Lake area.

Lyle Steed Jeffs, 57, of Hildale was booked by the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office at 11:43 p.m. Wednesday, about the time rumors began spreading on social media of his capture.

Jeffs was found to be living out of his vehicle, believed to be a Ford F-150 pickup truck, Barnhart said.
