Custer County Chronicle

Patrick Pipkin prepares to place a bid during the auction of the now-former FLDS compund property in southwest Custer County. Pipkin is one of three former FLDS members who joined forces to bid on the property, which they acquired for $750,000. Pipkin, Andrew Chatwin and Claude Seth Cooke don’t actually have to pay for the property. They bid against $1.7 million in judgments they are owed by the FLDS stemming from a lawsuit after they were illegally arrested and harassed by the FLDS in the towns of Hildale, Utah and Colorado City, Ariz.
