A COUPLE allegedly supplying firearms and ammunition to the Maute Group, Abu Sayyaf, and rouge politicians was arrested by the police along the North Luzon Expressway in Valenzuela City on Sunday evening. The suspects, identified as Edgardo O. Medel and Rosemarie R. Medel, were caught during a joint operation by the Regional Intelligence Division and Regional Special Operations Unit with the help of an informant. The police were able to recover from the couple three firearms and more than 13,000 rounds of ammunitions contained in boxes labelled “Government Property,” Philippine Army,” and “AFP.” Philippine National Police Director General Oscar D. Albayalde said they, along with the military, will further investigate the boxes. “We will coordinate with the AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines),” he said. The PNP chief also said that the police is still validating who are the alleged politicians that Mr. Medel were coordinating with. — Vince Angelo C. Ferreras
