Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

TWO in­di­vid­u­als were ar­rested for il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of firearms which is a vi­o­la­tion of the on­go­ing Com­elec gun ban in Si­tio Binocauan, Barangay Man­lu­c­a­hoc, Si­palay City, April 30.

Per re­port from the Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal Pro­vin­cial Po­lice Of­fice ar­rested were iden­ti­fied as Fran­cisco Gepanaga, 35, and Gino Panali­gan, 19, both res­i­dents of the Barangay.

Re­cov­ered from their pos­ses­sion were one unit of .45 cal­iber pis­tol with six live am­mu­ni­tions, and one unit of .38 cal­iber pis­tol loaded with six am­mu­ni­tions.

Cases for vi­o­la­tion of Repub­lic Act 10591 and vi­o­la­tion of Com­elec Gun Ban are set to be filed against the sus­pects.

It can be re­called that Philippine Na­tional Po­lice (PNP) Chief Os­car Al­bay­alde or­dered the po­lice force to strictly im­ple­ment the gun ban in their re­spec­tive ar­eas apart from in­ten­si­fy­ing their fo­cused law en­force­ment op­er­a­tions to dis­man­tle par­ti­san armed groups, neu­tral­ize gun-for-hire syn­di­cates and ac­count for more loose firearms.
