PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A North Dakota couple is facing charges in South Dakota for an alleged building scam.

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says 45-year-old George Nelson III and Karla Nelson of Fargo are charged with felony grand theft by deception. They allegedly sold metal buildings that were never constructed.

Jackley says the couple could have used numerous business names in South Dakota, including Baron Buildings, Baron Steel Buildings, Steel Baron Buildings, Steel Buildings of Georgia and Ag Pro Buildings/Fargo.

George Nelson is incarcerated at the Minnesota State Penitentiary for a similar scam in that state. An attempt to contact Karla Nelson at a telephone listing in Fargo for the couple was unsuccessful because the number is disconnected.
