MABALACAT CITY, Pampanga—Operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) arrested three Cameroonian men, who allegedly yielded some P250,000 worth of drugs, guns, and live bullets, during an operation Wednesday in Barangay Duquit here.

CIDG-Region 3 officer Col. Norberto Delmas said they arrested Flabien Jerome Noah Omgba, 22; Yves Emmanuel Bidas Wanko, 38; and Prosper Henri Junior Essomba Mbarga, 19, in an apartment at Homesite subdivision in the said village.

Central Luzon police director Brig. Gen. Valeriano de Leon said in a statement late Wednesday that the illegal drugs and guns were confiscated after CIDG operatives and Mabalacat City police served a search warrant against a certain Enzo Omgba, also a Cameroonian, for violating the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act,

The subject of the warrant, however, eluded arrest aboard a beige Hyundai Tucson sport utility vehicle.
