Father & Son Accused of $28,000 Theft in Redwood County

Mogwai Leader 2

(Redwood Falls, MN) – A father and son from Franklin are each facing felony charges in Redwood County for a theft of goods valued at $28,000.

Fifty-eight-year-old Mark Bina and 41-year-old Ben Bina are accused of stealing a trailer and four snowmobiles from a business in Vesta in March of 2017. Investigators were able to identify them as suspects this spring and brought Mark in for questioning.

Police say Mark Bina told them he and his son were driving through Vesta when they saw the trailer and sleds – and Ben said they “would be a good score.” The men then hooked up the trailer to Mark’s vehicle and brought the snowmobiles to Moorhead, where they sold them.

Dad and son are each due to make their first court appearance on August 27th.
