COTABATO CITY -- Police in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao today arrested
a Maguindanao village councilman in raid conducted in Datu Paglas town.

Arrested was Rasid
Madidis, village councilman of Barangay Damawata, Datu Paglas, Maguindanao.

Senior Supt.
Edwin Quilates, regional director of PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection
Group (CIDG-ARMM) led the raiding team composed of elements from the Regional
Public Safety Battalion (RPSB) at 11:45 a.m.

Quilates said
the raiding team was armed with arrest warrants issued by Judge Bansawan
Ibrahim of Regional Trial Court Branch 13 against Madidis and a certain Mama
Andang.

Police seized
a 9mm Beretta pistol from Madidis but he denied owning the gun. He told police the gun was pawned to him by a
friend who was a police officer.

The raiding
team failed to arrest Andang because he was not around when the lawmen raided his
home. However, police recovered
unlicensed M-14 Armalite rifle, one AR-15 rifle and one cal. 45 pistol with
ammunition from the house of Andang.

Quilates said Madidis,
who is now at CIDG-ARMM lock up cell, will be charged with illegal possession
of firearms. (Ferdinandh Cabrera)
