Senaior Supt. Rodolfo Castil, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, lauded the owners of the guns and explosives for the surrender of the items to the Himamaylan City police.

A 9mm caliber Armscor pistol with a magazine containing six ammunition was endorsed to the police by barangay chairman Jerry Vargas also on Monday in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental.

Vargas was driving his multi-cab vehicle, when he saw a man driving a motorcycle, throwing his gun to a canal, while approaching a police checkpoint, the police said. * GPB
