FINLEY, ND (KFGO AM) -- Steele County, North Dakota authorities captured a sex offender from northwestern Minnesota, one of two men accused in theft of a motorhome.
The search for a second suspect is expected to resume this morning.
22 year old Cory Roper of Thief River Falls was taken into custody yesterday after a day long search that included farm fields near Finley and Portland.
A second suspect, 21 year old Dylan Klode, also from Thief River Falls, is believed to be hiding in a corn field.
