Mobile Squad 13. Police

Mobile squad foils armed holdup

At about 1.30pm on Friday, the unit, whilst on routine patrol, came across three men acting suspiciously.

When the Mobile Squad unit stopped to check on them, all three made a dash for it. The MS13 members pursued on foot and apprehended one of them.

The suspect, from Eastern Highlands, had in his possession a homemade gun, two live bullets and a hood. Upon questioning, he revealed that he and the other two were planning to carry out an armed hold up on vehicles travelling the highway.
