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 misun-derstanding" and said authorities have no reason to suspect any criminal activity on the man's part.

"He thought it was legit-imately his and didn't realize he was doing any-thing wrong," Hicks said.
