Rapides Parish Logger Arrested for Timber Theft
March 12, 2018
Last month, the LDAF received a complaint from a Rapides Parish landowner that Edwards never paid the landowner proceeds from the land that was harvested in 2016.
“During the investigation, we discovered that Edwards allegedly misappropriated more than $14,000 that belonged to the landowner,” said Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain, D.V.M.
Edwards also reportedly admitted to stealing the timber and was booked into the Rapides Parish Jail.
If convicted, Edwards faces jail time up to 10 years and/or a fine of not more than $10,000.
