Four detained for moving valuable timber without permit

Fuerza Pública officers said they detained four men after they found that their truck contained 12 cocobolo logs.

The logs were being transported in an enclosed truck.  Cocobolo is a beautiful wood but on the way to extinction in Costa Rica, police officers said.

The men detained have records of illegal logging, officers said. The detention was in San Miguel de Cañas, Guanacaste.
