FARGO (NewsDakota.com) A Cass County man is facing several felony charges after he was arrested for a string of thefts in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.
48-year-old Paul Baumler of Leonard, N.D. is being held in the Cass County Jail. Authorities say Baumler was buying various items like vehicles and a horse trailer with bad checks and then selling the items on Craigslist and other websites to turn a profit.
