AUTHORITIES arrested three suspected crime syndicate members and seized some P10.2 million  worth of suspected shabu in Barangay Tenan, Ipil town in Zamboanga Sibugay on Wednesday afternoon.

Lt. Col. Don Templonuevo, 44th Infantry Battalion commander, identified the suspects as Nicanel Maningo, Benhazer Anduhol and Solaiman Calon, alleged members of the Barahama Alih Group.

The group has been linked to kidnap-for-ransom activities and the illegal drug trade in Zamboanga Sibugay.

Authorities seized during the operation a caliber M-16 rifle, two handguns, explosives, ammunition, 1.5 kilograms of suspected shabu.

“The neutralization of these lawless elements will significantly reduce the capability of their group in conducting kidnapping and other illegal activities. We will continue to go after them in order to ensure the safety and security of the people of Zamboanga Sibugay,” said Col. Bagnus Gaerlan Jr., commander of the Army’s 102nd Infantry Brigade.

It was a joint operation that included members of the National Police, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), and the Philippine Coast Guard.
