The company is in a business district about 100 yards back from a busy main road in Mandan known as the Strip. Mandan is a town of about 22,000 adjoining the state capital of Bismarck.

Morton County referred a request for comment to city police. The state Bureau of Criminal Investigation confirms that it’s helping with the investigation. It hasn’t offered any details.
