BICOL policemen on Wednesday arrested two New People’s Army members in separate operations in Camarines Sur and in Metro Manila, Police Regional Office 5 director Brig. Gen. Jonnel Estomo said.
The two were identified as Roberto Pasa, 41; and Manuel Ferol.

Estomo said local policemen recovered a cal. .38 revolver with three live ammunition, a hand grenade and three cal. .22 bullets inside the house of the suspect leading to Pasa’s arrest.
Ferol was tracked down in Las Piñas City by PRO5 agents and was arrested on the strength of a warrant of arrest for attempted murder issued by the Gubat, Sorsogon Regional Trial Court.
The suspect was described as a member of the CPP/NPA’s Bicol Regional Party Committee.
Estomo said that the two will be presented to the court for proper disposition.
