Police arrest minor
for gun ban violation


Policemen arrested a minor for violation of the Comelec gun ban, and two drugs suspects in Negros Occidental, Tuesday.

The arrest of the 17-year-old suspect in Brgy. Old Poblacion, Escalante City, whose identity is being withheld by the police for being a minor, yielded a 357 Magnum revolver with ammunition.

Escalante police investigation showed that the arrested minor allegedly threatened with a gun complainant Jeofrrey Gemina, who was on his way home in the barangay.

The arrested minor was turned over by the police to the Escalante Social Welfare and Development Office, while the confiscated gun is now with the city police.

A buy bust operation in Brgy. 5, San Carlos City, also led to the arrest of Rene Licaros, 27, a high value target drug personality, the police said.

The apprehension of Lica yielded five grams of suspected shabu, estimated to have a market value of P60,000, assorted drug paraphernalia and P500 in marked money.

A farmer identified by the police as Benjie Clarion was also apprehended in another buy-bust operation in Brgy. 2 poblacion also in San Carlos City.

The arrest of Clarion, 41, yielded P9,000 worth of suspected shabu and its paraphernalia, and P500 in marked money.*
