SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

A man accused of dismantling old rural barns and selling the wood for profit without the owners' permission was arrested in Salem.

Deputies said John Wyngarden, 36, has a long criminal history. The Marion County Sheriff's Office asked for the public's help tracking him down last week.

On Saturday, police received a call that he was at a home on Skyline Road South in Salem. Officers attempted to contact him and Wyngarden was taken into custody after being bitten by a Salem police K-9.

He was taken to Salem Hospital and then booked into jail. He is facing charges including theft.
