MOTLEY, Minn. (KNSI) Two people have been arrested by Cass County authorities and face charges for having stolen property in their possession.

Sheriff Tom Burch says deputies went to a residence in rural Motley last week on a tip that a woman at that location was wanted on an active warrant.

When they got there, the deputies saw a man run into a camper on the property. A short while later, the man's identity was confirmed to be 43 year-old Carl Raba of Deerwood.

The woman with active arrest warrants--31 year-old Celeste Nelson of Brainerd was also located and arrested.

Deputies found hundreds of stolen items on the property--everything from ATV's, campers, trailers, and tools. They also found meth.

Burch says a large percentage of the property has been identified and returned to its owners. Formal charges against Raba and Nelson are pending.
