PRF agents seized 35.16 m³ of sawn wood that had no valid environmental license for transport on highway BR-407 in Senhor do Bonfim on July 5. After the necessary investigations in the computerized systems, it was detected by the PRF that the documents presented had evidence of falsification according to a survey on the IBAMA website. The boards of Angelim, Sapucaia, and Jarana and other species left the state of Pará and were destined to the city of Capim Grosso (BA).
