Two armed men were in­ter­cepted by the op­er­a­tives of Cebu City Pub­lic Safety Com­pany (CPSC) dur­ing a pa­trol op­er­a­tion in an up­land barangay in Cebu City yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Adrian Cabri­ana, 33, and Etlio Cañeda, 23, both res­i­dents of Sud­lon II, were ar­rested for il­le­gally car­ry­ing firearms in Si­tio Patag, Barangay Bon­bon.

Po­lice Su­per­in­ten­dent Tim­mar Alam, CPSC chief, said that while they were pa­trolling the area, they no­ticed the two sus­pects act­ing sus­pi­ciously.

As the op­er­a­tives ap­proached the sus­pects, one al­legedly tried to draw some­thing from his hip where they later found a weapon con­cealed.

Re­cov­ered from Cabri­ana was a .45 cal­iber pis­tol with sev­eral live am­mu­ni­tions, while a .38 cal­iber pis­tol with sev­eral live am­mu­ni­tions was taken from Cañeda.

The sus­pects said that they were car­ry­ing firearms for self-de­fense.

In­ves­ti­ga­tion showed that Cabri­ana was among the sur­ren­der­ers in Barangay Sud­lon II last July.

Alam said Cabri­ana has been hid­ing in Bon­bon af­ter he was iden­ti­fied as a high-value tar­get by Mabolo Po­lice Sta­tion.

Cabri­ana de­nied the al­le­ga­tions against him and said that he al­ready stopped his il­le­gal drug in­volve­ment af­ter he sur­ren­dered last July.

The two sus­pects have been turned over to the Mabolo po­lice.
