Police and the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office in Mambusao town in Capiz seized alleged Illegal logs at Barangay Cala-agus over the weekend.
A barangay official was among those charged for the illegal logs.
The MENRO said the logs were loaded on a van driven by Joemil Bayo, and supposedly owned by one Bernardo Ponce, an official of Brgy. Pinay.
Bayo failed to present logging permits for the cut trees. Custody of the logs has been turned over to MENRO (https://dailyguardian.com.ph/illegal-logs-seized-in-mambusao/).
