The secret chamber of the sky blue Isuzu elf


Among the type of vehicles, the Truck or elf has the simplest design, wherein the back part has only its sidings and flooring.

During the first week September. the PNP personnel headed by Police Chief Inspector Jose G. Mulleda while in the performance of their duty at Callagdao Check point, Bulanao, Tabuk City checked the vehicles that pass by. When the Isuzu elf, sky blue and with galvanized body bearing plate number TGS 985 passed by and driven allegedly by a certain Duga Bucalan from Paracelis Mt. Province and his two companions, the PNP purposely checked the said elf.  They noticed that the flooring of the elf was slightly lifted with undetermined volume of sawn Narra flitches underneath.         

It was found out that the elf has a secret chamber. The chamber contains 47 pieces of Narra with a total volume of 747 board feet amounting to 55,988. The said specie is properly covered with GI flat sheet gauge 14 and welded with angle bar on its side. This also served as the flooring for the second layer.

In order to unload the said content of the elf, the police officers needed to use a crow bar to remove the cover.

The second layer was loaded with several empty fruit baskets which were made out of plastic which also look like cases of soft drinks. One plastic crate was filled with empty bottles of mineral water.

The simple design of the vehicle was really redesigned and intended to transport undocumented forest products.

The opposite sidings of the elf have built-in benches out of GI flat sheet and angle bar. Between the two benches is the space where they can pile such volume of lumber and properly covered with the said flat sheet which serves as the flooring of the second layer.

The Lumber was officially turned over to CENRO Tabuk Office. By virtue of the seizure order issued by CENR Officer Severino L. Dalutag, the administrative hearing of the case commenced in September 14, 2017.   The said vehicle is now impounded within the premises  of CENRO Tabuk.|C. Tabuk, SBBakidan
