Two men who were caught cutting wood from the base of a Department of Natural Resources bridge in Jefferson County last year have been sentenced. 

DNR said 63-year-old Troy Crandall was sentenced to 17 and half months in prison and ordered to pay $20,220.60 in restitution. He was convicted of first-degree malicious mischief, second-degree theft and first-degree trafficking in stolen property. 

The agency said his accomplice also pled guilty and was sentenced as a first-time offender to 12 months of DOC community custody and ordered to $20,000 in restitution. 


DNR: 2 men suspected of cutting wood from bridge with chainsaw

Two men were arrested after state officials said they were caught cutting chunks of wood from a bridge with a chainsaw in Jefferson County. 

In October, a DNR officer responded after deer hunters reported the theft. The officer saw two men cutting chunks of cedar logs from the bridge. 

The officer asked the two what was going on and Crandall said, "This is corporate b*******. This bridge is just rotting away." 

He also told the officer, "Sorry, not sorry."
