The Federal Police arrested two people on charges of storage and sale of wood without a valid license. The arrests followed an inspection on July 15 at a sawmill in the municipality of Benjamin Constant. Evidence collected at the company headquarters indicates that, although the operating license has been suspended since March, the sawmill was still active, processing timber illegally. In addition, the official systems state that the most recent record of wood movement processed by the company occurred in 2019. More than 200 logs were present at the mill.
