HAZELTON, N.D. (AP) – A 48-year-old custom combiner from Hesston faces a felony charge in North Dakota for allegedly stealing a load of corn from an Emmons County farmer whose fields he was harvesting.
Kevin Clark faces a theft of property charge that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison upon conviction. His attorney told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he had just gotten the case and was not prepared to comment.
The Bismarck Tribune reports that Clark is accused of selling about 1,400 bushels of corn worth about $9,500 that belonged to the farmer who hired him.
Clark owns American Quality Harvesting and Trucking, also known as Clark Farms, in Hesston.
