David Kiser

FARGO — Paul Mix, of rural Bemidji, was arrested Wednesday facing charges of aiding and abetting felony theft of diesel fuel.

The arrest comes after the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Department apprehended David Kiser, 31, on Sunday for the theft of more than 250 gallons of diesel fuel from a local business.

The Sheriff’s office and members of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension began investigating the theft of large quantities of diesel fuel in the area in August.

Mix, 30, is currently in custody, awaiting extradition in the Cass County Jail.
