Marshals: ‘Mountain man’ didn’t turn self in

HELENA — The U.S. Marshals Service said a former “mountain man” known for kidnapping a world-class athlete years ago didn’t turn himself in on federal drug charges Tuesday as previously reported, but was captured as the result of “old-fashioned detective work.”

Chief Deputy Marshal Rod Ostermiller said deputy marshals spent the last week tracking Dan Nichols’ movements in southwestern Montana.

A break came Tuesday when deputies learned Mr. Nichols was on his way to a Butte Wal-Mart. He was arrested without incident.

Mr. Nichols has been on the run since March, when he failed to appear in court on state drug charges. In April, federal prosecutors issued their own warrant for his arrest.

Mr. Nichols is known as one of the so-called “mountain men” who kidnapped a biathlete in 1984 to make her his wife. He was released from prison in 1991.
