Combined elements of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit (CIDU) Region 4A, Hightway Patrol Group-Cavite, Regional Public Service Battalion and Tanza Police served a search warrant at the suspects’ hideout in Barangay 2, Bagtas and seized numerous high-powered firearms of various caliber. Arrested were Inocencio Aron, a barangay councilman; his nephews Ronel, Christopher, Raymond and Chester all surnamed Aron; and Romeo Arnes, also a village councilman. CIDU regional chief, Supt Daniel Alinas, said the group is responsible in the spread of unlicensed firearms in Cavite and nearby provinces.
