Agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao immediately arrested Omar Ali Amerol, Corina Mabitasan, April Rose Natividad, Brando Natividad, Alvin Lagasca and Jeyson Patrecio after selling their illegal merchandise to non-uniformed operatives during a tradeoff in Wao, an upland town in Lanao del Sur.
