Man Nabbed In Jackson Faces Federal Charges

October 25, 2012 State of Wyoming, Town of Jackson No Comments
Stidham

An apparent habitual burglar from Missouri apprehended in Jackson last January has been sentenced to 235 months in prison followed by five years supervised release. Federal District Court Judge Nancy Freudenthal last week also ordered 39-year-old Frederick Stidham to pay a $2,400.00 fine and a $100.00 special assessment.  Stidham’s penalty stems from charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm.  Police in Jackson had  responded to a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot of the Teton County Library and found a woman asleep in the back seat of the crew cab.  Upon further investigation, they leaned the truck had been stolen in Harlan, Nebraska two days earlier.  The woman was arrested for being in possession of a stolen vehicle.  She told police that she had been with her boyfriend who was on foot in the area.  Then about four and a half hours later, police responded to a residential burglar alarm a few blocks away and observed a male matching the description of the woman’s boyfriend running from the residence.  The police report shows the man had been armed but quickly disposed of his handgun into the snow.    Investigation of the home found nothing had been taken, but inquiries showed the man to be a convicted felon from Missouri and other Midwestern states – mostly for burglary.  Further investigation was then conducted by the Jackson Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives which led to the federal charges.
