Warren Jeffs, a known polygamist and fugutive, was caught this week after the Cadillac Escalade in which he was riding was pulled over by the Nevada Highway Patrol.
The trooper who pulled over the vehicle said something didn’t seem right as soon as he approached the vehicle. The FBI arrived on the scene and found 3 wigs, 15 cell phones, letters to “President Warren Jeffs,” $54,000 in cash and $10,000 in gift cards.
Isaac Jeffs, Warren’s brother, was driving the vehicle and one of Warren’s many wives was with him.
Jeffs is the head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which has 10,000 members. The church split from the Mormon Church when the Mormons stopped endorsing the practice of polygamy over 100 years ago.
Jeffs has been running the sect since 2002, when his father died. He has been on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list since May for sex crimes that include arranging marriages between underage girls and adult men.
Sources close to the church say that it is likely that nothing will change for the church members
