Pair Arrested After Rare Artifacts Stolen From Clay Co. Home

BARNESVILLE, Minn. (AP) — Two people have been arrested in connection with the theft of vintage collectibles and guns from a home in northwestern Minnesota.

KFGO radio reports that the merchandise is worth thousands of dollars and includes sports memorabilia and rare artifacts from World War I and World War II.

Clay County prosecutors have charged 32 year-old Justin Marlen and 26-year-old Amber Hedstrom with nine counts of felony theft. A public defender could not be reached for comment.

The recovered items include a rare sheet of Adolf Hitler postage stamps, a World War I era German passport and boxing gloves autographed by Ken Norton and Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini.

Some of the stolen items were recovered from a home in Detroit Lakes, where the suspects were arrested.
