CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The logger accused of cutting healthy trees and selling the lumber has turned himself in.
An arrest warrant was issued last week for David Bowen. At the time, investigators believed he was out of town.
Kanawha County Sheriff's Deputies tell WSAZ.com Bowen turned himself in Wednesday night.
County officials say Bowen was hired to remove trees in Coonskin Park that were damaged by severe weather. However, deputies say Bowen cut healthy trees and sold the lumber for more than $100,000.
Bowen is facing three charges in connection with the case. Each carries a sentence of one to ten years in prison.
According to a court spokesperson, Bowen is scheduled to appear in Magistrate Court for his preliminary hearing on June 2 at 1:30 p.m.
