KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - A Las Vegas developer proposing a land swap in the Red Lake area is being ordered to cease trespassing on federal land and constructing unauthorized roads.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (https://bit.ly/1JmDO6h) the Bureau of Land Management issued a cease and desist order after a probe into Kingman Farms owner Jim Rhodes found evidence of violations.

Colorado River District Manager Roxie Trost sent a letter to Rhodes on May 15 that says he is responsible for at least rehabilitating the property, as well as the BLM’s administrative costs.

Rhodes wants 21,000 acres in the Red Lake area that would give him control of an aquifer.

County Supervisor Gary Watson opposes the swap. He said with this new trespassing evidence, he can’t imagine state land officials will consider the exchange.
