Police confiscated more than 100 pieces of mahogany timber along the National Highway in Poblacion Rizal, Zamboanga del Norte last Wednesday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report said that operatives of the Rizal Municipal Police Station were on mobile patrol along the national highway when they spotted a green cargo truck bearing several pieces of lumber.

The driver, Nervin Bantilan Erat, failed to present documents that will support the transport of 180 pieces of mahogany lumber loaded in his truck.

The timber reportedly came from barangay San Roque in Rizal, Zamboanga del Norte.

The driver was detained while the logs were impounded by police.  (E-media)
