The election gun ban in connection with the election period for barangay and SK polls started on April 14.
NBI’s Task Force Against Illegal Drugs operatives discovered illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia, live ammunition and identification cards in Jonathan’s bedroom and one caliber 40 pistol in his car.
Jonathan reportedly attempted to flee the arresting officers but was cornered.
On the evening of the same day, Maynard, Archie, as well as a certain Henry Moyano and Romeo Laurenaria Jr. were also arrested after they were spotted in front of a house in the same subdivision.
A Glock 23 pistol with no papers was found in Laurenaria’s vehicle.
The three Alfaro brothers were charged with possession and use of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
Laurenaria, Moyano and Archie were also charged with violations of the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act, the Omnibus Election Code, and for obstruction of justice.
