'Stolen' building found, turn out to be misunderstanding with previous buyer
BAKER, Minn. - A metal building reported stolen here this week has been found in the possession of a Barnesville-area man who made a deal for the building five years ago, the Clay County Sheriff's Office says.
Detective Jason Hicks called it "simply a misunderstanding" and said authorities have no reason to suspect any criminal activity on the man's part.
"He thought it was legitimately his and didn't realize he was doing any-thing wrong," Hicks said.
