CAMP COL. RAFAEL C. RODRIGUEZ, Butuan City – Police authorities in Caraga have arrested a total of 20 wanted persons during separate operations in different areas in Northeastern Mindanao or Caraga region over the weekend.

“All the 20 wanted persons were arrested by virtue of warrants of arrest issued by the different courts in the region,” PRO 13 Regional Director Chief Supt. Gilberto DC Cruz told The Manila Bulletin on Monday.

He said the arrests were made following the intensified anti-criminality campaign launched by PRO 13 and the strong partnership among the police, the community, and other stakeholders.

“I urge the community to continue their support to our different police units in the field because this is for the good of everybody,” stressed the regions’ police chief.

He added that “Operation Manhunt” against wanted persons will continue without let up.
