Astalled four-wheel drive hatch­back at the cen­ter of the South Road Prop­er­ties yes­ter­day morn­ing led to the con­fis­ca­tion of sev­eral high-pow­ered weapons and the ar­rest of its driver.

Po­lice from the Mo­bile Pa­trol Group re­sponded to the re­port of the ve­hi­cle which bogged down at the SRP that could cause a traf­fic jam.

When the mo­bile pa­trol ar­rived to as­sist in mov­ing the stalled ve­hi­cle, they saw sev­eral high-pow­ered firearms in­clud­ing an Uzi sub­ma­chine gun, a KG-9 firearm and a.45 cal­iber pis­tol.

They also saw a medium pack of sus­pected shabu.

The po­lice im­me­di­ately ar­rested the driver, Bart Fu­lache, 30 years old, and a res­i­dent of Barangay Te­jero, Cebu City.

Cebu City Po­lice Of­fice pub­lic in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer, Se­nior In­spec­tor Lewe­lyn Reyes said they will con­duct a bal­lis­tic ex­am­i­na­tion on the firearms re­cov­ered to check if these were used in crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties in the past.

Water­front Po­lice Sta­tion com­man­der Se­nior Insp. Jovito Labra said he will ver­ify if Fu­lache is in­cluded in their list of sur­ren­der­ers, con­sid­er­ing that Barangay Te­jero is un­der their ju­ris­dic­tion.
