BRAINERD, Minn. (AP) - A Brainerd man is back in jail after resuming operations of what officials call an illegal flea market.

The Brainerd Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/U964ad ) a judge sent Chad Ross back to jail Friday. He will stay there until his yard sale is cleared or he completes his 270-day sentence.

Ross pleaded guilty in November to three misdemeanor counts of storage of junk and debris. Officials dismissed $6,000 worth in fines after his plea. Ross hadn't cleaned his yard by a February deadline and initially spent 45 days in jail. He set up a large tent with items in his yard after his release.

Ross is let out of jail eight hours a day to do work on his property. The city prosecutor says Ross holds the keys to his own freedom.
