Charges for illegal possession of firearm and violation of the election gun ban are set to be filed against a security guard who brandished a gun during a commotion in Virac last week.

The report said that at 9:49 P.M. of April 22, 2019, elements of the police station led by Chief Master Sgt. Erwin Molina responded to a call for police assistance at the residence of one Rizalyn Tioxon at San Isidro Village.

Upon arrival, the law enforcers were met by Tioxon, who handed over to Senior Master Sgt. Joselito Tubo a Cal. 22 Magnum Black Widow, without ammunition and serial number, which the woman said was owner by suspect Patrick Bagay, 27, of Libod, Pandan and temporarily residing at the village. The gun was apparently taken by Tioxon during the commotion and kept it until the lawmen arrived.

In Pandan, a village watchman has turned over to the police an improvised gun he found on the road side near the Pandan District Hospital last week.

Barangay tanod Ricardo Condeno, 64, chief tanod of Napo, told Pat. Arnel Binas that he was on roving patrol on the night of April 23, 2019 when he saw the improvised gun apparently abandoned at the side of the road near the hospital.

The following day, he went to the police station and turned over the gun, which is now under custody of the police for proper disposition.

In San Andres, an owner of a beach resort also turned over to the police a “paltik” revolver which was found by a worker excavating the site of a proposed dirty kitchen.

Fil-Swiss national Lourdes Loyola, 55, owner of Warren Resort at barangay Comagaycay, surrendered the home-made, snub-nosed Cal. 38 revolver as well as its six bullets, to the police last April 23.

She told the police that a certain Ronnie Nazareno was digging the site of the kitchen when he unearthed the gun.
