Viga policemen on an information gathering mission chanced upon an illegal fisher using electricity to catch fish but the suspect managed to escape.

Elements of the police station led by Staff Sgt. Jordan Teope were at sitio Barunbon in barangay Rizal at 5 P.M. of July 21, 2019 when they chanced upon a man in the act of catching fish using a battery-operated device.

As the team was about to approach, the suspect rapidly ran towards the mountainous area and eluded arrest, leaving behind his fishing gear consisting of a 12-volt motorcycle battery, fish catcher and an electrical rod.

In Pandan, charges are being prepared for filing against three fishermen who were caught in the act of fishing using an air compressor.

Joint elements of the Pandan police, Special Operations Team and Provincial Intelligence Branch under the supervision of Capt. Robert Kevin Caparroso, were on seaborne patrol when they chanced upon Ruel Bermejo, 28, Richard Posada, 35, both of Balangonan, and Jason Eusebio, 26, of Oga, while in possession of a compressor tank and other fishing paraphernalia at 7:30 A.M. of July 14 along the shoreline of Balangonan.
