Joint AFP-PNP operations: Two NPA arrested, Four AK-47 seized in South Cotabato

NSFA, Panacan, Davao City- Government forces apprehended two NPA members on board red Mitsubishi Lancer with plate number PGF 172 armed with four AK47 rifles during a joint Army-PNP checkpoint in Brgy. Centrala, Surallah, South Cotabato, Sunday afternoon. The successful apprehension was a result of the recently forged joint AFP-PNP directives against the NPA.

Four AK 47 rifles with 15 long magazines loaded with ammunitions were recovered from Ariel Ariano of Barangay San Isidro, Koronadal City and Alexander Puertogalera from Tulunan, North Cotabato. They were immediately brought T’boli Municipal Police Station for appropriate filing of charges.

27th Infantry Battalion Commanding Officer Lt. Col. Shalimar Imperial said that the remaining NPA in T’boli, Lake Sebu and in the nearby towns are desperate of their failed recruitment effort in the area. “We really appreciate our renewed scheme for joint AFP-PNP law enforcement operations, with information sharing, our operations become more effective” Lt. Col. Shalimar said.

Meanwhile, EASTMINCOM Commander Lt. Gen. Ricardo Rainier G. Cruz III commended the joint Army-PNP elements involved in the apprehension “This is just the beginning, our collaboration will further be expanded to include LGUs and other agencies” Lt. Gen. Cruz said.

The AK-47 is the standard weapon used by the terrorist organizations around the world.
