CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A logger who lost his state license after being accused of illegal timbering in a Kanawha County park is operating under a different company name in Fayette County.
Secretary of State's office records show David Bowen now works for Bo-Ru LLC. The logging company was incorporated on July 1 and is owned by Bowen's mother.
The Division of Forestry revoked Bowen's license in July and ordered him to mitigate the damage from an unauthorized cut at Coonskin Park. The county had hired Bowen's company, Russell Trucking, to remove park debris after the 2012 derecho.
Park officials say Bowen also cut logging roads and cut and sold more than $100,000 worth of timber.
The Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/177koU5) reports that Bowen ran three other companies that dissolved dating to 1991.
