OKLAHOMA CITY - A man suspected of killing three people and setting fire to a home in Colorado was found with the victim's credit cards and 22 guns, among other items.

Harry Carl Mapps has waived extradition following his arrest in Oklahoma.

Mapps appeared before a district court judge on Monday in eastern Oklahoma's Sequoyah County.

Assistant District Attorney Stacey Slaughter says the 59-year-old Mapps waived his extradition rights and agreed to return to Colorado.

It wasn't immediately clear when he would be sent back, but local jail officials say he could be returned to Colorado at any time.

Slaughter says Mapps did not have an attorney.

Mapps was arrested Saturday night at a motel in Roland, Okla. He's accused of killing three people, 51-year-old Reginald Tuttle, his wife, 55-year-old Kim Tuttle, and their daughter, 33-year-old Dawn Roderick.

Their bodies were found in a home in the small southern Colorado town of Rye after the house burned on Nov. 27.

According to a search warrant, Mapps had Reggie Tuttle's Cabela's credit card and nearly $6,000 cash on him.

After searching Mapps' motel room and car, investigators seized 22 guns -many of them loaded - as well as ammo, a road atlas, a ski mask, prepaid calling cards and pictures of at least one of the victims, according to a search warrant obtained by 9NEWS.

U.S. Marshals say the victims were avid gun collectors. It's unclear how many of the weapons recovered belonged to the Tuttles.
