‘Illegal flea market’ slowly being cleared in Brainerd
By Jessica Larsen
BRAINERD, Minn. -- An “illegal flea market” is slowly dwindling in size as owner Chad Ross picks away at the items in the few hours each day he’s released from jail.
Ross has been in jail for almost a month because he has refused to pick up the items cluttering up his Pine Street yard.
Not thousands of dollars in fines, not formal charges, not even the threat of time behind bars persuaded Ross to clean up the property.
