Pagadian city-based Maritime Police personnel intercepted six motorized pumpboats during a series of seaborne operations within the vicinity of Yllana Bay in Zamboanga del Sur.

903rd Maritime Police Station Chief Chief Inspector Wilfrido Abellon disclosed that the pumpboats were seized after operators failed to present permits and licenses for operation.

The pumpboats were released after operators were able to pay the fines for operating without the requisite documents.

In another development, two local government officials donated patrol boats for the Maritime Unit’s seaborne operations.

Abellon thanked Pagadian city Mayor Tata Pulmones and Zamboanga del Sur Governor Antonio Cerilles for donating two patrol boats.  (Allen Abastillas)
