Illegal Logging in Maskall

In the past few days, we have been reporting on the arrest of persons for illegal fishing. Well tonight, there is an arrest about illegal logging. An Orange Walk resident and a seventeen year old remain in detention at the Ladyville Police Station after they were caught transporting logs. This morning, Maskall police intercepted a white delivery truck; its cargo was a large quantity of hardwood. But the men could not produce a permit for the logging. The duo was taken into custody as forestry officers are being brought in to inspect the logs and levy charges.

“This morning, our police in Maskall stopped a truck and upon checking it, they found illegal logs in the truck. It was brought to the Ladyville police station and we have been in touch with the forestry officers who will be coming to ascertain the offenses committed and levy charges against the individual Aurelio Mai and a seventeen year old minor. We know that the rainy season is here and most of the loggers are trying to get the logs out before the ground get soggy and impossible for them to transport the logs from out of the area that they have been cutting—whether legally or illegally. So we are just on the lookout for the illegal loggers at this time.”
