MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man has been arrested after removing nearly 120 teeth off of a swather parked in an ag equipment sales lot.

A swather is a harvesting machine that cuts and windrows grain and seed crops.

Police in Mandan say 47-year-old Daniel Friedt has been charged with Class A misdemeanor theft of property. Authorities say an implement dealer contacted police after seeing Friedt removing the teeth from the swather.

Friedt was still in the parking lot when police arrived. His pickup truck was parked next to the swather.

Police say police found the teeth on the truck’s bed. Their value is estimated at nearly $680.

It’s unclear whether Friedt has legal representation.
