I have seen this before and just read an article about it so i thought I would share it. It is common for theives or scam artists to steal timber from absentee property owners or elderly property owners. Saw logs can be worth quite a bit and it's unfortunately common for people to cut trees down and steal them off of property. Also common for scam artists to convince someone they're needing some firewood and they'll cut you some if you let them cut some of the downed trees. They then go deep in the woods and cut saw logs and remove them out the adjoining property.
