BARRON, Wis. (AP) — Heavy construction equipment stolen in Minnesota has been recovered in Wisconsin.

The Barron County Sheriff’s Department says a Caterpillar excavator backhoe, a Bobcat skid steer, trailers and other pieces of construction machinery with a total value of about $200,000 have been located.

Search warrants were executed late last week at properties in Turtle Lake and the town of Almena where authorities found the missing equipment. A 29-year-old Turtle Lake man is wanted for questioning.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press says the machinery stolen in four counties in Minnesota has since been returned.
