According to a release from the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office, investigators found secret caches in the walls and floor of Glen Alexander’s home north of McKinnon.
Alexander was arrested March 24th after an overnight standoff, a standoff that ended when a tactical unit blew in the door with explosive charges.
The joint investigation includes sheriff’s deputies from Sweetwater and Uinta counties in Wyoming and Dagett County in Utah. Last Wednesday’s investigation and property seizure represent burglaries going back a number of years, according to Sweetwater County Sheriff Rich Haskell.
Recovered items include rifles, shotguns, handguns, ammunition, jewelry, Rolex watches, computers and computer equipment, binoculars, knives, swords, camping equipment, guitars, cell phones, coins, stamps, tools and GPS units.
Officials said additional charges are likely to be filed against Alexander, who remains in custody at the Uinta County Jail in Evanston in lieu of a $75,000 cash or surety bond, as the investigation continues.
