KASIBU, Nueva Vizcaya (September 12) -- Police authorities here have captured one of the members of the dreaded Solid Ifugao Group gang Saturday after a brief firefight.

Police Senior Supt. Segundo Duran, provincial police director said the robbery holdup suspects who were victimizing vegetable traders and farmers in this town were captured after sustaining gun shot wounds.

"They were cornered after being hit during a firefight," Duran told PIA.

Duran said responding policemen met the group while on their way to escape and engaged them into a firefight.

Another two of their colleague were also wounded but managed to escape along with their firearms, police said.

Recovered from the suspects were a bag containing money and a cellphone.
