Timber Reported Cut, Stolen



Someone cut a stand of timber near Clarkton without the permission of the owner, according to the sheriff’s office.

Wesley Wyatt went to check on the property in the 1500 block of Greens Mill Road on Sunday, according to the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office. While he owns the land, he does not live nearby.

Wyatt discovered that at least 20 trees had been cut and removed from the property. He told the CCSO that no one had permission to take the trees. The value of the trees was not listed in the report.

Larceny of timber is a felony in North Carolina, regardless of the number of trees or size.
