AN AMERICAN national was arrested for illegal possession of firearms in the province of Zamboanga del Norte, the police said Wednesday.
The Zamboanga del Norte police identified the arrested American as Jeffrey Roy Bradley, 57, who is temporarily residing in Barangay Goleo, Sindangan.
Bradley was nabbed around 5:50 p.m. Tuesday while having a drinking spree together with a friend beside the MPL Plaza in Barangay Poblacion, Sindangan.
His arrest came after he was seen by policemen showing to his friend a handgun tucked on his waist.
The police said they received a report from a civilian about the presence of an armed foreigner in the area.
Confiscated from Bradley was a caliber .45 pistol with seven live ammunition, the police said.
Bradley has been detained while an appropriate charge is set to be filed against him, since he failed to show documents of the firearm he was carrying, the police added. (Bong Garcia)
