CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan — Three men allegedly engaged in illegally manufacturing firecrackers in Sta. Maria town were arrested recently after a clampdown on unlicensed makers in this province.

Colonel Relly Arnedo, Bulacan police director said Manuel Yturralde, Anthony Lucero, and Clinton Mistiola, all of Barangay Pulong Buhangin, were caught around 5 p.m. on Nov. 5, making “sawa” (snake) and “five stars” inside a makeshift factory.

Arnedo said the three failed to present a permit to operate.
