Environmental Military Police seized 34 cubic meters of Massaranduba lumber in transit on highway MS-306 in the municipality of Costa Rica on August 11. The Document of Forest Origin (DOF) did not appear in the travel itinerary, which makes the document invalid. The itinerary identification serves to prevent illegal wood from being removed from other places with the same document. The truck and the lumber allegedly belong to a company in Bandeirantes, Mato Grosso from where it departed. The company was fined about US$ $1,880. The truck was also seized.
