Police have arrested three suspects for possession of guns – including a person impersonating a police officer.
The fake Police Officer suspect was flagged down after the motorcycle he was riding on did not have a licence plate. When confronted, he introduced himself as a member of the Philippine National Police but failed to show documentation to that affect. Police recovered a .45 calibre Colt pistol and a magazine loaded with ammunition.
The other two suspects were apprehended at a checkpoint after a .38 calibre revolver was discovered on their Honda motorcycle – also without licence plates.
All three men are in a local Tarlac jail facing various charges.
