TILLAMOOK, Ore. -- An Estacada man was arrested for stealing more than $1,000 from fee boxes in Oregon forests, police said.

Deputies and Ore. Dept. of Forestry employees spent about a month investigating thefts in the Tillamook Forest area, according to the Tillamook County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said 36-year-old William Wilson (pictured) had been using a combination of tools to steal money from the fee boxes without damaging them.

He was arrested Sunday on theft charges.
