A resident of Sta. Catalina was arrested yesterday by policemen for possession of questionable firearm and for violating the Comelec gunban.

Nabbed was Pabian Hashim. Seized from his possession was  a Taurus .45 caliber pistol with two magazines loaded with live rounds of ammunition.

A police report disclosed that Hashim went to their residence to retrieve some of their belongings and after coming out of Sta. Catalina, police and military called his attention and when frisked,  the lawmen found a.45 caliber pistol from his possession.

Hashim presented papers legalizing him to possess gun, but could not produce any official document that exempts him from the Comelec gun ban.

Hashim was taken to the city police office and was placed under investigation while the gun and its ammunition were turned over to the investigators. — Dan Toribio Jr.
