Fugitive former sheriff turns himself in
Former Kanabec County Sheriff Von Thompson has turned himself into authorities after spending about a week as a fugitive.
Thompson was charged in October with four felonies for allegedly swindling a 91-year-old man out of $179,000.
Current Sheriff Steve Schulz says Thompson called investigators around 7 a.m. Tuesday to say he was willing to surrender. Investigators met him 20 minutes later and arrested him.
