Leith Moves to Raze Cobb Home
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The small North Dakota town of Leith is moving to condemn and demolish the home of a white supremacist who has tried to take over the town but has instead ended up jailed on felony terrorizing charges.
Mayor Ryan Schock says Leith is condemning Craig Cobb's home because Cobb has missed a 30-day deadline to install water and sewer service. Schock says City Attorney Thomas Kelsch is putting the paperwork together. Kelsch didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
The girlfriend of a man who's jailed with Cobb still lives in the home, with three children. Schock says she'll be evicted — just like anyone else would be in a similar situation.
A telephone listing for the woman couldn't be found, and no one has been answering Cobb's cellphone.
