Some 1,276 board feet of illegal lumber was seized in Baler town in Aurora on Sunday, the Philippine Coast Guard said late Monday.
A team with representatives from the Coast Guard and the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office seized the lumber from two motor boats.
It said the first motor banca skippered by Ricardo Bibon had a 4DR engine (engine number 8307), while the second motor banca, with two engines and colored white and blue, was abandoned.
Both vessels are in the custody of the Coast Guard Baler substation. —Joel Locsin/KG, GMA News
