Really now...what proof do we have on this fella? I have read about several plans to catch or hurt this guy, what if he is innocent? Maybe some guy from Trona did the crimes, and some drifter in the desert is getting blamed. Sounds like the back country man is skilled at survival, and he may not be the crook who stole the car and motorcycle. Dont set your sights just yet. May be an innocent back country man who wants to be left alone. A few cans of food missing wont ruin anybodys trip.If there are no more missing items from Ballarat or tourist cars missing, the real thief may be long gone. He obviously did not want those rifles or he would taken the precautions to properly hide them.
