PNP seizes P 4.5M worth of smuggled gun parts

PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) has confiscated some P 4.5-million worth of gun parts smuggled from the United States.

This was during the arrest of a suspect identified as Bryan Tal-Ala and his underling, Wilford Palma.

The two were nabbed on August 6 at Villa Cristina Subdivision in Barangay Tangub, Bacolod City.

Palma and the confiscated firearms were presented to the media at the PNP Headquarters in Camp Crame on Thursday.

Tal-Ala is confined at an intensive care unit of a hospital in Bacolod City due to hypertension.

The smuggled goods were intercepted after the U.S. Homeland Security gave a tip to the Bureau of Customs.
