For the third time in less than two months a Caddo Parish man has been arrested on timber theft charges.

Enforcement agents with the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry have arrested 61-year-old David Lubas of Greenwood. He was booked into the Claiborne Parish Jail on a charge of theft by fraud of timber valued at more than $10-thousand dollars.

Investigators say Lubas was hired by two sisters to help sell their timber for a 10-percent commission. They say he told the sisters that the highest bid he’d obtained for their timber was $27,500 when, in fact, he’d received a high bid of $38,000. They say he directed the logging company to write him a check for $10,500 for his consulting fee and other services — and then billed the sisters for 10-percent of the $27,500.

Lubas was arrested twice in August for timber theft in Desoto Parish
