Cadiz police restricts
6 soldiers for 12 hours


The police took into custody and placed under restriction for 12 hours six Army soldiers, against whom complaints of alarm and scandal were filed past midnight yesterday in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental.

PMaj. Robert Mansueto, Cadiz City police chief, however said, the six Army soldiers, who are members of the 79th Infantry Battalion Scout Platoon, were released at noon yesterday, after the lapse of the 12-hour reglementary period for detention.

The six Army soldiers were allegedly involved in an alarm and scandal incident at a restobar at Gustilo Boulevard in Brgy. Zone 1, Cadiz City, Mansueto added.

The six soldiers were also observed to be under the influence of liquor, a Cadiz police report showed.

The police also recovered four .45 caliber pistols.

Mansueto said an amicable settlement was reached between the two complainants and the Army soldiers.

He added that they returned the confiscated firearms, after the soldiers produced documents allowing them to possess such guns.*
