Police raided the house of a barangay councilor in Barangay Valladolid, Carcar City yesterday on suspicion that he kept unlicensed high powered firearms.

Barangay Councilor Ryan Sagulili however eluded arrest when the police team came to serve a search warrant issued by Judge Jerry Dicdican of RTC Branch 29 in Danao City at around 9 p.m. last Friday.

The police team composed of the Provincial Intelligence Branch and the Public Safety Battalion however only recovered two caliber .9mm bullets from the councilor’s house.

But in a shanty behind Sagulili’s house, three women were caught tallying proceeds from an illegal numbers game, among them the sister of the barangay councilor, Rosel Sagulili.

The two others were identified as Thelma Bardinas, 60, and Amina Bardinas, 22.

The authorities found a fax machine, a telephone and tally sheets with number combinations but police did not seize these items as these were not included in the search warrant.

The women however were detained at the Carcar police station.

Barangay Captain Celso Apura said he had warned Sagulili about his illegal gambling activities.
