An hour later, police officers led by P/Capt. Emsol Icawat recovered 16 pieces of 2x8x12 lumber, three pieces of 2x6x12 and three more of 2x4x12 lumber of Philippine Mahogany specie with a total volume of 316 board feet and valued at P11,850.

The lumber was hauled to the police station for documentation and turn over to the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office in Virac.

In Viga two days earlier, barangay officials in Ananong intercepted a motorcycle loaded with 12 pieces of undocumented lumber.

Chief tanod Eddie Antero and tanod Nelson Diones were on duty at 11 P.M. pf April 1, 2019 when they flagged down the motorcycle driven by one Suya Estrella, allegedly a resident of nearby Mabini.

The barangay officials unloaded the lumber of assorted sizes but as they finished the work, the suspect escaped by driving the motorcycle towards Mabini.
