TALAKAG, Bukidnon - Two suspected members of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) were nabbed in Sitio Sta. Victoria, Brgy San Rafael, Wednesday for allegedly looting livestock and harassing residents from a nearby community.

Two fully loaded shotguns, a rifle, and ammunition were recovered from Junie Barton, 38, and Nurli Polinda, 21, authorities said.

The suspects claimed to be members of the MNLF and were also wearing fatigue uniforms bearing the MNLF patch, officials added.

The two are still detained as authorities believe Barton is the primary suspect in a shooting incident at Sitio Anahaw, Brgy Dominorog, Talakag where one man was killed.
