Wyoming Sheriff Searching for Weapons in Utah Case
PINEDALE, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming sheriff says the father-son pair accused of a kidnapping in Utah may have left weapons in his state, where they two were arrested after a five-day manhunt.
Sublette County Sheriff Stephen Haskell said Friday that firearms and knives Flint Wayne Harrison and his son Dereck James "DJ" Harrison were believed to have had were unaccounted for. Haskell says anyone who finds weapons should contact authorities and not touch the items.
The Harrisons, who were booked into a Utah jail Thursday on kidnapping and other charges, are accused of tying up a woman and her four teenage daughters in a basement. The women escaped.
The body of a missing rail line worker was discovered along the Harrisons' likely route to Wyoming. They have not been charged in his death.
