Man arrested for stealing hundreds of trees

An East Texas man faces theft charges for allegedly stealing trees off a property without the owner's knowledge.

49-year-old Anthony Roberts was arrested by Rusk County authorities earlier this month.

In February, authorities say Roberts harvested hundreds of trees from a 100-acre tract, south of Mt. Enterprise, without permission from the land owner.

No trial date has been set, and Roberts has bonded out of the Rusk County Jail.
