A man and his female companion were arrested for possession of gun and shabu in Mampang Friday night.

Nabbed were Ban Sahiron y Ubbie, 39, married of Arena Blanco and Hajara Abdullah y Tingkao, 23, of Arena Blanco. They were arrested by men of the Zamboanga City Public Safety under Supt. Ariel Huesca around 8 p.m.

Huesca said his men led by Sr. Insp. Jivertson Pelovello rushed to Mampang particularly at Alvarez Drive, after a concerned citizen reported that six armed persons were seen in the area.

When policemen arrived, they saw Ubbie and Abdullah acting suspiciously. The duo ran towards their house while lawmen were approaching.

Pelovello’s team chased and arrested them. Confiscated from Ubbie’s possession was a .45 caliber pistol with seven bullets in the magazine and several drug paraphernalia, empty sachets with shabu residue scattered on the floor of their house.

The suspects were detained at the city police office pending the filing of charges in court.— Dan Toribio
