Cebu town mayor’s brother arrested for gun possession
CEBU CITY— Authorities arrested the brother of the municipal mayor in northern Cebu after he yielded an alleged illegally-possessed firearm during a raid on Tuesday.
A composite team led by Supt. Joie Yape, Jr., chief of the Provincial Intelligence Branch (PIB), confiscated from suspect Jover Jusay, a resident of Barangay Flores in Catmon, a .45-caliber pistol with ammunition.
Jusay is the younger brother of Dan Jusay, mayor of Catmon, about 57.2 km from this city.
Police report showed that Jusay allegedly had links to Borbon village chief Jinnefer Mercader, who was arrested in September for possession of illegal drugs and guns.
Other groups involved in the raid were the Regional Special Operations Group-Central Visayas, Provincial Drug Enforcement Unit, Provincial Safety Company and Special Weapons and Tactics. /kga
