As reported by KUTV, the FBI in Salt Lake City announced the arrest in South Dakota on Wednesday evening of fugitive FLDS leader Lyle Jeffs. Last June Jeffs fled while under house arrest awaiting trial on charges of conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. (See prior posting.)  Lyle is the brother of Warren Jeffs, the now-jailed former leader of the polygamous FLDS sect.
