Lafayette police detective Gary Thatcher finds the trailer reported stolen by Scott Kimball the previous December hidden at Kimball’s former Adams County home. Kimball had already collected $10,000 in insurance claims.
Scott Kimball and his girlfriend, Denise Pierce, go to Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah to shoot guns. Pierce would later identify the handgun they used as part of a federal firearms case against Kimball.
A federal arrest warrant is issued for Scott Kimball for violating his supervised release on his 2001 Alaska check-fraud case. Kimball’s probation officer says he failed to check in and had left Colorado on unauthorized trips.
Scott Kimball is officially deactivated by the FBI as an informant. It’s not clear exactly when or why, but at some point in the fall of 2005, Special Agent Carle Schlaff had been removed from the case.
