The Pandan police confiscated three pieces of narra lumber from two men who were caught in the act of transporting the undocumented forest product last week.

Adrian Trinidad, 20, a student of the Philippine College of Criminology and a resident of Libod, and construction worker Elvis Villasana, 32, of Minaili, Bagamanoc, also yielded a jap saw. They will be charged with violation of Presidential Decree 705.

Last July 19, joint elements of the Bagamanoc police led by Capt. Edwin Adora together with the Viga and Panganiban police, Catanduanes 1st Police Mobile Force Company and the 2nd PMFC tried to serve a search warrant on John Patrick Segismundo Villasana, 29, self-employed and resident of sitio Sabang, barangay San Isidro, Bagamanoc.

However, the suspect was not at home and is deemed at large. The search led to the seizure of 16 pieces of narra lumber of different dimentions and with a total volume of 193 board feet, and two air guns.

Villasana would face separate complaints for violation of forestry and gun laws.

In Viga three days earlier, joint elements of the local police led by Staff Sgt. Jordan Teope together with the 2nd PMFC led by Pat. Christian Vargas, collared Pancho Turreda, 32, and farmer Edgardo Dizon, 42, both of barangay Rizal, when they were caught in the act of transporting 49 pieces of “apnit” sawn lumber on board a topdown tricycle.

The lumber, with a volume of 196 board feet, was valued at P15,680.
