CLARK FREEPORT ZONE -- Operatives led by Task Force Aguila (TFA) intercepted here a van loaded with undeclared undergarments worth around P65,000 the other day.
Arnel Maguillo of TFA said the undeclared clothing materials were found inside a Suzuki van with plate no. BAB-6023 registered under the name of Welively Inc.
Assisted by public safety personnel and Bureau of Customs operatives, the TFA intercepted the van while it was about to exit the main gate of this free port.
“The company, through the driver, circumvented the CDC policy on bringing out of materials from the CFZ sans the appropriate ‘CDC bring-out permit.’ Purportedly, the alleged smuggled items will be brought to Quezon City for repair by their sub-con. The driver, MV truck and the seized materials were held at TFA office for recording purposes, inventory and temporary impoundment,” Maguillo said.
Meanwhile, five most wanted persons including the top most wanted of Cabiao, Nueva Ecija were arrested during separate manhunt operations conducted by police authorities in Central Luzon over the weekend.
Cabiao’s most wanted was identified as Roberto Dela Cruz, who was arrested for statutory rape by town and provincial policemen.
In Zambales, police were able to arrest Moises Mary, ranked no. 5 most wanted in the provincial level, for robbery and carnapping and Kharlo Cadag, ranked no. 7 most wanted of San Antonio police for violation of Sections 11 and 14 of RA 9165.
