P2.5 million worth of Agarwood seized in Q.C.

A task force under the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) arrested a Chinese national for illegal possession of some 14 kilos of agarwood valued at P2.5 million in Quezon City.

Agarwood is a resin that is valued for its distinctive fragrance that is formed when the host tree becomes infected with a mold called Phialophora parasitica.

Qing Nan Lin was collared on October 11, by operatives of the Philippine Operations Group on Ivory and Illegal Wildlife Trade, or Task Force Pogi, under the DENR outside a Chinese temple at 81 P. Tuazon Street, in Quezon City.

Also arrested in the sting operation are Jonathan Guzman and a certain Roberto Intes, both Filipinos.
