The Federal Highway Police seized 45.63m³ of wood that was being transported with a false document on June 10 in Anapu at km 497 of highway BR-230. The Forest Guide presented by the driver did not present the mandatory stamp and, in addition, the fourth copy of the GF, which should have been retained at the Mato Grosso State tax office, was still with the other documentation, indicating that the driver did not pass through the tax post.
