Citizen Armed Forces Geographical Unit (CAFGU) personnel arrested two blast fishermen off  Sta. Cruz Island last Sunday night.

Nabbed were Sammy Adjarail, 45, married and Gallum Sali Adjarail, 25, single.  Both are residents of Sitio Buggok, Sta. Catalina.

A police report showed that the militiamen were at their detachment at around 7:30 p.m. when they heard an explosion.

At this point, the militiamen swooped down at the location of the explosion and they spotted the two Adjarails onboard a pumpboat.

During inspection, two bottles of an energy drink filled with ammonium nitrate, one box of matches, time fuse, lighter and a blasting cap were recovered in their possession.

The suspects along with the seized items were taken to the Central Police Station pending the filing of charges in court.  (Dan Toribio)
