2 trucks of ‘illegally quarried’ sand seized in Quezon province

All sea travels in Quezon province were suspended on Monday (Feb. 27) due to a gale warning over the eastern seaboards of Luzon brought by the strong northeast monsoon locally known as "amihan."


LUCENA CITY — Police on Thursday intercepted two trucks reportedly loaded with illegally quarried river sand in Sariaya town in Quezon province, police said Friday, March 3.

In a report, the Quezon police said local police and Provincial Mining Regulatory Board personnel flagged down around 5:30 p.m. the trucks driven by Joe Mark Hernandez and Glenn Albindo in Barangay Tumbaga 1.


Police said each of the vehicles was loaded with three cubic meters of sand illegally quarried along the river bank in the village.


The drivers failed to produce the required permit or authorization from the PMRB for the quarry materials.

Authorities seized the vehicles, and the suspects will be charged criminally.

Legal and illegal quarrying activities thrive in Sampaloc II, Sto. Cristo, Tumbaga, Canda, Limbon, and Castañas situated on the banks of the Janagdong and Lagnas rivers. INQ
