62 year-old Roger Greathouse was arrested at his New Harmony home and then transported to the Vigo County jail where he later made bail.
He's facing a number of charges, including one count of purchasing timber without a license.
DNR officers say Greathouse has been illegally purchasing timber in Vigo County since 2012.
Officers say Greathouse has similar charges pending in Vanderburgh County.
