ST. GEORGE — The notorious “Mountain Man” burglary suspect, Troy Knapp, has been sentenced to more than a decade in prison.

During an appearance in U.S. District Court here, Knapp was sentenced to 10 1/2 years in federal prison on weapons charges, FOX 13’s Zach Whitney reports.

Knapp is due in 5th District Court later today where he is expected to strike a deal with state prosecutors on burglaries stemming across seven counties. He faces 45 counts.

Knapp, who gained notoriety for leading police on a lengthy cat-and-mouse game as he burglarized cabins, was arrested last year near Manti.
