FINLEY, N.D. (AP) — Authorities in eastern North Dakota’s Steele County combed a cornfield to capture a convicted sex offender from Minnesota who had allegedly cut off his tracking bracelet and stolen a motor home.

The sheriff’s office says 22-year-old Corey Roper, of Thief River Falls, was captured Tuesday. A man who was with him was not immediately found.

Minnesota Department of Corrections records show that Roper is on probation on an earlier conviction for having sex with a girl under the age of 14.
