Tired of dark cloud; conscience got the best of thief
A 21-year-old Elk River man, who told police he was tired of having a dark cloud over his head, returned to the owner a $3,500 trailer he said he stole about six to eight weeks ago from the 13500 block of 196th Avenue.
The man told police he had been intoxicated when he stole the trailer, and he said he didn’t have a reason to take it. He has since connected with Minnesota Teen Challenge in Duluth and his life has changed for the better.
Police were called to the residence when a neighbor saw the man pushing the trailer down the street toward the victim’s house. Police arrested the man on charges of felony possession of stolen property.
