The suspects were identified as Jose Franco Dado y Parro, 39 years old, married, a resident of Brgy. Quitang, Pasacao and Belinda Abril y Capulong, 44 years old, married, a resident of Brgy. San Cerilo, Pasacao.
Dado and Abril were apprehended at about 7:40 a.m. after they were seen peddling meat suspected to be from a dolphin, locally known as "lumod."
Police requested the suspects to produce a legal permit to prove their authority to sell the threatened species. However, they failed to present any.
As a result, the suspects were taken into custody by the Libmanan Police Station.
The arresting team, led by SPO2 Jacinto Parado, also seized said goods.
Police are now preparing to file a case against Dado and Abril for violation of RA 8550 or "The Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998."--BICOLSTANDARD.COM
