Members of the Tebo Police criminal investigation unit have apprehended four men for allegedly transporting illegal logs in the Koto Ilir district of Jambi.
The four men are Usman, 21, Safrius, 23, Safril, aka Cecep, 23, and Tropika, aka Ropi, 20, all of whom are residents of Teluk Lancang, Tebo regency.
Criminal investigation unit chief Adj. Comr. Syahlan said the police apprehended the four suspects in Balai Rajo village, Koto Ilir district, on Friday, after stopping a truck that was carrying logs.
The police asked for documents but the driver Usman could not show the proper documents for transporting the logs.
“Because they failed to show us official documents, we seized the truck and its cargo for further processing,” he said on Saturday.
The four men told police that the logs were taken from the Bukit Tigapuluh National Park. Investigators are developing the case to find out who is behind the illegal logging, Syahlan said. (rin)
