AUTHORITIES are now digging deeper on the possible involvement of the arrested barangay chairperson in Bukidnon to an organized criminal group.

According to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG)-Northern Mindanao, they are still verifying reports that Cherry Barros, the village chief of Kinawe in Libona town, is connected with the Kuratong Baleleng (KB), a criminal group based in Misamis Occidental, they thought to have long been disbanded following the deaths of its leaders.

Barros, along with 18 others, was arrested by a team of police and military operatives in a Saturday dawn raid.
