Custom harvester from KS charged with felony in NDHAZELTON, N.D. — A custom combiner from Kansas faces a felony charge in North Dakota for allegedly stealing a load of corn from an Emmons County farmer whose fields he was harvesting.
Forty-eight-year-old Kevin Clark faces a theft of property charge that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison upon conviction. His attorney, Sidney Gross, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he had just gotten the case and was not prepared to comment.
