BY GILBERT BAYORAN
A traffic snarl led to the capture of five suspects linked to the killing of a policeman Sunday in Hinigaran, Negros Occidental, and the arrest yielded a cache of high-powered firearms and explosives.
The arrest took place half an hour after the shooting incident, Senior Supt. Milko Lirazan, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, said yesterday.
He said the five suspects were arrested after a brief chase by policemen in Hacienda Espinos, Brgy. Camandag, La Castellana, which is adjacent to Hinigaran town.
