All four were caught in the act of cutting down the tree without the necessary permits by elements of San Jose Municipal Police Station.
The authorities confiscated from the group a chainsaw with a tampered serial number, and the lumber from the illegally-cut tree.
A complaint for the violation of the Forestry Reform Code and the Chainsaw Act are now being prepared by the police.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
