White supremacist Craig Cobb relinquishes ownership of destroyed property

NOME, N.D. (AP) -- A white supremacist who bought a building in Nome only to see it destroyed by an intentionally set fire says he's sold back the property in the small southeastern North Dakota town.

Craig Cobb tells WDAY-TV that he's taken back the $8,000 he paid for an old church and given the property back to the previous owner.

He's also rescinding a reward he previously offered for information about who set the building on fire in March.

Authorities have said the fire was arson. There have been no arrests.

Cobb is serving four years of probation for terrorizing residents of Leith in 2013. He lives in Sherwood.
