Mark W. Dunlap and Paul Jean Audit were each fined $1,000 in Provincial Court in Moncton Sept. 4 after pleading guilty to illegal possession of Crown timber.
According to the Times & Transcript the court was told that some of J.D. Irving’s cut Crown wood was being stolen from a pile in Pine Glen.
The accused were videotaped putting some of the Crown wood into the trunks of their vehicles.
Judge Troy Sweet said if the wood had been stolen and resold the men could have been fined a minimum of $10,000 apiece.
