BAGHDAD – Soldiers from 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team captured a wanted criminal suspect during an operation in Narhwan March 16.
Soldiers from 1st Battalion, 10th Field Artillery, cleared three houses during the mission and detained an additional three suspects for questioning.
The detained individual was wanted by Iraqi Security Forces and Coalition forces for his alleged role in several improvised explosive device attacks.
He is suspected of smuggling weapons and explosives for several criminal groups throughout Iraq.
Soldiers uncovered a small cache in the suspect’s home containing an AK-47 assault rifle, two shotguns, a bayonet and a small quantity of small-arms ammunition.
“Everything went perfectly,” said Capt. Jared Albright. “Our guys did everything according to plan, and it went exactly as we rehearsed it.”
