22017014_10209983095601980_587037682_oFour male individuals are tonight facing serious charges from the Forestry Department after they were caught by Orange Walk Police with over thirty pieces of illegal Mahogany wood over the weekend.

 


On Sunday September 24th Orange Walk Police were conducting patrol on the old Northern Highway when they came upon a white Izusu freight truck with four male occupants. A search on the vehicle resulted in the discovery of thirty two illegal mahogany logs.


All individuals were detained and subsequently handed over to the forestry department.


Today when we contacted the Forestry Department we were informed that the case is currently in processing and all men are expected to be charged by tomorrow. The value of the logwood remains unknown so far.

We must note that the logging season here in Belize customarily closes in the month of June and re-opens between October and November.
