Marine police seize illegal timber logs

Date:

BINTULU: The marine police here seized 26 timber logs worth RM10,400 in an operation codenamed Ops Landai Covid-19 on Monday.

Region 5 marine police commander ACP Shamsol Kassim said the operation took place around 5.30pm near the Sebauh intersection at Mile 15, Jalan Bintulu-Miri.

A team stopped a suspicious lorry loaded with timber logs for inspection.

“Following checks, the logs were believed to have been obtained illegally as there was no title deed.

“It is also believed that the logs were being transported without permission from the Sarawak Forest Department,” he said.

The team also detained the lorry driver, 27, to facilitate investigation.

The suspect and the seized items were handed over to the Forestry Department for further action.
