SALT LAKE CITY — An arrest warrant has been issued for a man believed to be involved in a series of cabin burglaries in Kane, Garfield and Iron Counties.

Troy James Knapp, 44, of Salt Lake City, has been charged with one count of aggravated burglary, two counts of burglary and one count of possession or use of a firearm by a restricted person, according to an arrest warrant affidavit issued Tuesday by the 6th District Court.

According to court documents, Knapp's fingerprints match those recovered from a 2009 Kane County burglary. Kane County residents also captured images of the Knapp passing through their properties around the time of nearby burglaries.

Knapp is believed to still be in the area, according to a statement by Kane County and Iron County sheriff's offices, and is described as armed and possibly dangerous. He is 5 feet 10 inches tall with red hair and hazel eyes and has tattoos on his left and right arms, chest, neck and the back of his left hand.

The public is asked to report any sightings or information to dispatch centers.
