MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have recovered $500,000 worth of equipment stolen in a break-in at a tower site for KIMT-TV in Mason City in Minnesota.

The burglary happened earlier this year at the station’s tower near St. Ansgar in Mitchell County.  KIMT reported in February that copper and other equipment had disappeared from the site.

Mitchell County Sheriff Curt Younker says deputies from his department and the Mower County sheriff’s office in Minnesota searched two homes in southern Minnesota on Thursday.  He items stolen from KIMT were recovered. Two people were taken into custody by Minnesota officials.

Charges are pending as the investigation continues.
