Police looking for barn wood thief

Posted: Updated:

Police are looking for a man accused of stealing barn wood in Marion County.

Marion County sheriffs are seeking 36-year-old John Wyngarden in their investigation into the theft of wood from older, rural barns. They believe Wyngarden has been dismantling barns and selling the salvaged wood without the owners' consent. Police also think he has sold the contents of those barns.

But this isn't the first time Wyngarden has aroused suspicion, he has been arrested 14 times on charges ranging from assault to carrying a concealed firearm. Right now, there is a criminal mischief warrant out for his arrest.

Wyngarden is 5'10" tall with brown hair and blue eyes. Marion County sheriffs urge anyone who may know where he is to call 503-588-5032.
