An Iraqi Police officer removes radios, tactical gear, and other electronics found buried in the yard of a mosque in Lahib, Northeast Karmah, Jan. 10. Iraqi Police along with Marines from 2nd Platoon, Company W, Task Force 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 1, conducted a more than 12-hour operation, detaining 11 suspected insurgents while sweeping for weapons caches in Karmah. Marines left Karmah's main police station months ago, leaving it to be solely operated by the IP. The cache discovery in Lahib demonstrates the Iraqi Police increasing proficiency and self-sustaining security capabilities as Marines continue transitioning to an overwatch position.
