Police manning a checkpoint along Nuñez Extension arrested a 21-year-old man for possession of an undocumented gun last Monday night.

Arrested was Christian Licson y Bartolome, single, of Tumaga. He was arrested by policemen led by Sr. Insp. Jade Mandi. Confiscated from his possession was a .38 cal. revolver with six rounds of ammunition in the cylinder.

Investigation showed that Mandi and his men were manning a checkpoint around 9 p.m. when Locson wearing Philippine Coast Guard trousers came in aboard a motorcycle.

Police later found out that Locson is a civilian.
