A 27-year-old Apple Valley man died while in custody at the Beltrami County Jail. 

According to the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office, Hardel H. Sherrell died Sunday while in custody. Authorities say Sherrell collapsed just before 5 p.m. and was unresponsive while in the presence of a corrections officer and a medical technician.
