BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) – When the FBI arrested Heber Jeffs on kidnapping charges in Minot in February, many people were surprised to learn that Jeffs and other members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or the FLDS, are making connections in North Dakota and moving north.

Heber Jeffs is the nephew of convicted child rapist Warren Jeffs, who investigators say leads the extremist group from a federal prison in Texas. Prosecutors claim Heber kidnapped a 10-year-old from Utah and brought her to Minot as part of a revelation to “gather” the FLDS women at Warren’s order. They say Heber’s arrest is the latest event that’s arisen from years of criminal investigations into the organization.
