MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities say a truck driver in northwestern Minnesota was cited earlier this month for illegally hauling a shed.

The Minnesota State Patrol said the incident happened on Nov. 19 in Pennington County, just west of Thief River Falls. A sheriff’s deputy stopped the truck on Center Avenue North, then asked for a state trooper to come to the scene and help navigate commercial vehicle laws.
