Police officers of Stations 4 and 5, Iligan City Police Office (ICPO), arrested on Tuesday March 5 at about 7:35PM two (2) suspects for possession of one (1) hand grenade, two (2) cal. 45 pistols, and sachets of shabu.

Earlier, PRO-10 Regional Director PCSUPT CATALINO B RODRIGUEZ, JR ordered the doubling of police operations following the killing of two (2) policemen in Iligan City, and even before the noise barrage was made by Xavier University students.
Forty (40) police officers each in the city police offices of Iligan and Cagayan de Oro were deployed from the Regional Public Safety Battalion. Additional deployment is soon expected in the provinces while the Holy Week celebration approaches.
Joint elements of Libona Municipal Police Station and the Regional Public Safety Battalion arrested Valeriano Anonsaon Jr, alias “Junior,” in Barangay Sil-ipon, Libona, Bukidnon at about 10PM, February 26, 2013.
He has a pending Arrest Warrant for Attempted Homicide issued by Hon. Judge Lourdes Eltanal-Ignacio of the 1st MTC of Bukidnon covering the jurisdictions of Talakag, Baungon and Malitbog.
His arrest was a result of the continuous manhunt operations conducted jointly by members of the PNP and AFP after NPA rebels harassed Del Monte and Dole plantations in Bukidnon last February 19, 2013. Two (2) rebel suspects were arrested on this date immediately after a joint PNP/Army follow-up operation in Barangay Kihare, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon.
The Directorate for Logistics, Camp Crame has provided PRO-10 eleven (11) motorcycles that will be used to boost police visibility efforts of police stations in Northern Mindanao. The end-users, mostly with remote barangays, can now expand their visits to areas not passable by patrol cars.
Although this number is far below when compared to the total number of police stations in the region, PRO-10 leadership is hoping that equipping its police force with the ability to fight criminality through the acquisition of these motorcycles and other police equipment will remain a continuing program of the PNP.
