BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected of stealing more than $100,000 in nickel from mines in the northern Manitoba region of Canada has been arrested and turned over to U.S. Border Patrol agents.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the Bismarck Police Department and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police helped agents arrest the man, whose name has not been released.

After Bismarck police received a tip that the man was in the city, police in Manitoba sent photographs to be distributed to homeless shelters. The man was arrested Aug. 12 at one of the shelters.
