Military police and officials from the forestry administration in Kratie province seized a truck transporting illegal timber yesterday morning.
Provincial military police commander Keo Chea said his forces, in cooperation with forestry officials, stopped a truck loaded with logs on the National Road 7 in Snoul district.
“We caught a truck at about 1am and found some loggers and wood,” he said.
According to a local website, authorities stopped the truck, which was bearing a Vietnamese plate, while it attempted to cross into Vietnam.
Mr Chea declined to comment further.
He said the trucks were impounded along with the wood at the forestry administration’s Khsem cantonment for further legal action.
