Gerona, Tarlac - - A former United States army and his brother were arrested here last Wednesday by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) at Barangay Dicolor.

In his report PCInsp Jerrold Jake Manguerra identified those arrested as brothers Leslie Borge Visaya, 44, and Enrique Borge Visaya, 31, both of Barangay Dicolor.

Their respective houses were raided by virtue of 2 Search Warrants issued by Judge Ronald Leo Haban of the Tarlac Regional Trial Court Branch 66.

A fully loaded Llama caliber .45 pistol was seized from Leslie’s house, while a Colt 1911 caliber .45 gun with 9 bullets was confiscated from the house Enrique.

According to Manguerra, the Visayas were made subject of police operation after receiving several reports of their possessing high powered pistols.

Last month, a kin of the Visaya brothers, Bernard Visaya, who is the Barangay Chairman of Dicolor, was shot dead by motorcycle riding criminals right in front of the barangay hall in a daring early morning ambush.

Sought for comment, Manguerra, the newly assigned Tarlac CIDG Provincial Officer said, “One of our primary mandate is to eliminate the proliferation of firearms to deter criminality. We shall remain very serious in apprehending persons possessing unlicensed firearms who ever they are”.

Manguerra belongs to the Philippine National Police Academy batch 2006.
The Visaya brothers were charged of violation of Republic Act 10591 or the Comprehensive Law on Firearms and Ammunitions Act.
