Operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) have arrested a 21-year-old woman who was tagged as a member of the communist underground movement in a raid in Naga City, police said on Sunday, May 2.
CIDG director Maj. Gen. Albert Ignatius Ferro said the operation that occurred on Sunday morning in Barangay Cararayan in Naga City also resulted in the confiscation of a handgun, a grenade and improvised explosive materials.
He identified the arrested woman as Maria Jesusa Sta. Rosa.
“She is now in the custody of CIDG Camarines Sur for further investigation and filing of cases,” said Ferro.
Police have stepped up the campaign against communist insurgency in the country in the past months by running after both the armed fighters and people identified with the alleged legal fronts of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA).
