A Detroit Lakes man faces charges for allegedly stealing a camper from an RV lot in Moorhead. Charges filed this week in Becker County District Court stem from an investigation by the Becker County Sheriff's Office who received information of a possible stolen camper at a residence near the Otter Tail River in Becker County.
Court records state, a deputy located the camper, checked the Identification number and found it matched the RV, worth over $37,000, reported stolen from the Outlet Recreation lot in Moorhead. Authorities found another individual living in the camper along the river.
The occupant, who was otherwise homeless, told a deputy 29 year old Steven Barnes offered him the camper to stay in. Barnes faces a count of Receiving Stolen Property. His bail was set at $10,000 Wednesday.
