ILOILO CITY - The children of slain drug group leaders Melvin and Meriam Odicta were arrested in their home in Barangay Malipayon after authorities conducted a raid early Thursday morning.

Melvin Odicta Jr. and his siblings Darryl and Michael were arrested for allegedly conspiring to maintain the family's drug den, authorities said.

Members of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and the Philippine National Police - Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) recovered two pistols and several sachets of suspected shabu from the Odicta's family home.

The late Odicta couple denied their alleged ties to the illegal drug trade earlier this year, before they were gunned down in September.
