CURRIMAO, Ilocos Norte (Oct. 11) – The Currimao-based PNP Maritime Unit is now showing good performance since it got a new P1.7 million-worth rubber boat.
As proof, the Maritime group arrested four suspects in illegal fishing, particularly the use of compressor last Monday (Oct. 11).
Inspector Reynaldo Campanano, chief of PNP Maritime based in Currimao, said that the arrested suspects were caught by surprise by the arresting officers. The suspects did not notice us, as we approached them, Campanano said.
Authorities identified the arrested suspects as Bernard Purisima, Willie Guzman and his two sons, Romnick and Ramil.
Charges against them are now being readied, Campanano added.
