TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - Authorities in south-central Idaho say they’re confident they’ll close a case involving the poaching of a mule deer that grew to trophy proportions within Twin Falls city limits and became something of a celebrity.

Authorities tell The Times-News (https://bit.ly/1AfK4ib) that investigators on Wednesday collected more than 30 pieces of physical evidence at a Twin Falls home after serving a search warrant.

Outrage about the poaching resulted in a $2,800 reward for information. Authorities say they obtained the search warrant following tips from the public.

Residents say the mule deer buck with heavy, wide and tall antlers lived in Rock Creek Canyon between the Amalgamated Sugar factory and Snake River Canyon.

Idaho Fish and Game officials say the deer was killed within city limits on Jan. 26 or Jan. 27.
