Woman reports herself as trespasser

Heel marks found in the ground at a property northeast of Fergus Falls, believed to be those of a person previously issued a no trespassing order, turned out to be a false alarm.

The female property owner called the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office at 8:21 a.m. last Thursday to report a trespasser, then later called back, embarrassed, after realizing the heel marks were her own.

She had forgotten that she recently purchased a new pair of boots, and had just the day before walked where the tracks were found.
