CAMP QUINTIN MERECIDO, Buhangin, Davao City – 3 members of the communist terrorist group (CTG) were arrested on Thursday in a manhunt operation in Tagum City.

PRO11 (Police Regional Office 11) director Brig. Gen. Benjamin Silo Jr. said the operation was conducted by members of the Tagum City Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) and the Philippine Army 1001st Brigade at Purok San Roque, Bgy. La Filipina, Tagum City.

Silo identified the suspects as Victor Pagas Rollon alias “Go/Pong”, head of Ordnance of the ROC Southern Mindanao Regional Committee (SMRC) and a resident of Mawab, Davao de Oro, with a warrant of arrest for murder; Christine Joy Adorza Dula, of Bgy. Bagong Silang, Quezon City, with a warrant of arrest for rebellion and insurrection; and Chargilyn Monta Casquejo, medic SMRC, of Monkayo, Davao de Oro, for violation of RA 10591 (Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act) after a 5.56 mm Colt pistol loaded with 9 live bullets, a stethoscope, a thermometer, and 1 sphygmomanometer were recovered from her possession.

Seized from Rollon were a .45 caliber pistol loaded with 7 live ammunition, 4 mobile phones, a SIM card, while recovered from Dula were 2 improvised explosive devices (IED) and a black notebook.

The 3 suspects were brought to the Tagum City Police Station before they were endorsed to the 1001st Brigade in Maco, Davao de Oro while the CIDG is preparing documents for their inquest proceedings.

Silo commended the operating teams, hoping the continuous arrest and surrender of CTG members will eventually end the insurgency problem in the Davao region.
