Author of Chuting Gallery, Andrew McLean, Arrested For Stealing Hunting Equipment

McLean has apologized for stealing $1500 worth of hunting equipment from the Wasatch Wilderness.

Andrew McLean, most known for his backcountry skill and expertise as documented in The Chuting Gallery – A Guide To Steep Skiing In The Wasatch, has been charged with a felony for illegally removing two deer stands with his wife, Polly, from the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. Polly McLean is an assistant attorney for the Park City municipality, and Andrew is well regarded for his skiing and mountaineering exploits. The two were arrested on Thursday for the thefts and face both felony and misdemeanor charges, according to Fox News 13.

Roberts’ original post to social media which helped identify the McLeans.

These stands are common tools of hunters, who utilize them as an elevated platform for hunting. Apparently, the theft follows a surge of aggression and vandalism that has specifically targeted hunters in the area. The McLeans stole the stands from local Skip Sheldon Roberts, who documented the pair committing the crime by the use of a nearby hunting trail camera. Roberts, dismayed, reached out to social media for help after losing an estimated $1,500 in equipment and incurring $500 in damages. Quickly, the post went viral and McLean was immediately recognized and identified as one of the culprits. A warrant was obtained to search the couple’s home, in which the tree stands were found along with a stolen trail camera.

“All I can say that I made a serious mistake, am doing everything possible to make it right and that I have no excuse for it,” Andrew McLean told TGR regarding the incident. He made no further comment as to why he and his wife chose to remove the stands. 

what an asshole

HA, the authorities wants some theoretical reason as to why a thief steals????  ...and then slaps them on the wrist with community service as somekind of punishment…
