By BBN Staff: A Programme for Belize Ranger filed a report to Orange Walk Police that on Sunday sometime around 2:30 p.m. while on patrol with other rangers, they came across five Hispanic men between Hill Bank and Irish Creek who were conducting illegal logging.
The ranger said he informed the gentlemen that they had to leave the area immediately since it was a protected area and illegal logging was prohibited. According to the ranger, one of the men pulled out a shotgun and demanded him to leave along with the other rangers. Fearing for their, the rangers left.
Orange Walk police are looking for five men of interest as they continue their investigation.
