Two young men alleged to be notorious holduppers were arrested after the police caught them carrying unlicensed firearm and illegal drugs along MC Briones Highway in Barangay Tipolo, Mandaue City, Cebu on Tuesday morning.
Meliton Villaronte, 18 and Ramil Sevilla, 21, both residing at Barangay Mabolo, Cebu City, were brought to the Subangdaku Police Station pending the filing of charges.
Villaronte would be charged with illegal possession of firearm and illegal drugs and while Sevilla would face possession of illegal drugs charges, said PO2 Ricky Estrera of the Subangdaku police.
