FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Wishek area farmer is suing a South Dakota farm partnership and private investigation firm for allegedly withholding evidence in a criminal case that was eventually dismissed.

KFGO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/1NnakZ7 ) that Glenn Herr says in a federal lawsuit filed in Fargo that he was wrongly accused of stealing a $10,000 truckload of soybeans that belonged to Cornhusker Farms of Bath, South Dakota.

The complaint says Herr was charged with theft because the partnership, partner James Husby and Aberdeen, South Dakota-based Zylstra Investigations made malicious and false statements during the investigation. Herr claims that documents that would have prevented him from being prosecuted were intentionally withheld. The criminal charges were dismissed.

Private Investigator Laura Zylstra declined to comment on the suit. A message left for Husby was not immediately returned.
