Truck busted for yielding hot lumber kept in secret chamber
by Sheila B. Bakidan

An ordinary looking elf truck flagged down in a checkpoint yielded what were believed to be illegal lumber that were kept on a secret chamber to evade inspection.

While on duty early this month, a police team headed by C/Insp. Jose G. Mulleda posted at the Callagdao checkpoint in Bulanao, Tabuk City flagged down an Isuzu elf truck with license plate TGS 985, driven by Duga Bucalan from Paracelis, Mountain Province.

The team noticed that the flooring of the elf was slightly lifted. Upon further inspection, the police found a secret chamber in the vehicle, where 47 pieces of narra with a total volume of 747 board feet worth P55,988, covered with GI flat sheets and welded with angle bar on its side and which also served as the flooring for the second layer.

To unload the content of the elf, the police officers used a crow bar to remove the cover.

The second layer was loaded with several empty fruit baskets made out of plastic which also looked like cases of soft drinks.

One plastic crate was filled with empty bottles of mineral water.

It was observed that the simple design of the vehicle was redesigned and intended to transport undocumented forest products.

Among the type of vehicles, the truck or elf has the simplest design, wherein the back part has only sidings and flooring.

The lumber were confiscated and turned over to the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office Tabuk City.

By virtue of the seizure order issued by CENR Officer Severino L. Dalutag, the administrative hearing of the case commenced on Sept. 14. 

The vehicle has been impounded and kept within the premises of Cenro-Tabuk.
