A resident of barangay Busay, Sacol Island was arrested for  possession of two undocumented guns last Tuesday.

Police identified the suspect as Muksan Sacandal y Kalung, 55,  married, and working as a fisherman in Sitio Camias.

Investigation showed that men of the Sacol Compac with  members of the Citizen Armed Forces Geographical Unit (CAFGU) were conducting foot patrol at around 10 a.m. in barangay Busay when they spotted Sacandal with a handgun tucked in his waist.

Immediately lawmen called his attention but Sacandal ran away, prompting lawmen to pursue him.

The suspect was arrested inside his house where authorities recovered a .45 caliber pistol.

Aside from the handgun, lawmen also found a Springfield Garand rifle beside the door of the house.

The suspect failed to present papers authorizing him to possess the firearms.

Police detained the suspect while the recovered undocumented guns were turned over to the investigators for filing of charges in court. (Dan Toribio)
