Brainerd Man Returns To Jail For Flea Market

BRAINERD (AP) – A Brainerd man is back in jail after resuming operations of what officials call an illegal flea market.

A judge sent Chad Ross back to jail Friday. He will stay there until his yard sale is cleared or he completes his 270-day sentence.

Ross pleaded guilty in November to three misdemeanor counts of storage of junk and debris. Officials dismissed $6,000 worth in fines after his plea.

Ross hadn’t cleaned his yard by a February deadline and initially spent 45 days in jail. He set up a large tent with items in his yard after his release.

Ross is let out of jail eight hours a day to do work on his property.

The city prosecutor says Ross holds the keys to his own freedom.
