Pringle, S.D.• Custer County authorities say there’s no indication members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints have flocked to South Dakota, but the group is behind on property taxes.
The state of Texas last month seized the FLDS ranch in that state. The FLDS still own a ranch near Pringle, S.D.
Custer County Sheriff Rick Wheeler says he expected an influx, but there’s not a lot of traffic on the compound and it’s been quiet.
However, Deputy Treasurer Peggy Lindbloom says the group owes just under $51,000 in back taxes on the Pringle ranch.
The South Dakota group could not be reached.
