Two men with illegal possession of firearms and a bladed weapon with violation of the Omnibus Election Code in Marikina City were nabbed by authorities last April 22.
Marikina Police Station 9 identified the two suspects as Danilo Bello and Gerardo Meren.
Bello and Meren were apprehended at West Drive cor Narra St., Brgy. Marikina Heights, Marikina City when they were flagged down while on board a motorcycle. But the suspects sped off, resulting in a brief chase.
The two also failed to present official receipts or certificate of registration of their motorcycle, as well as their driver’s license.
During a body check, one unit of cal. 9mm Llama Minimax 9 pistol, with serial # 07-04-02293-96, loaded with one magazine and five live ammunition, was confiscated from Bello, while one five-inch kitchen knife was recovered from Meren.
They are now under the custody of the Marikina central police station while waiting for inquest proceedings.
