Neutralized NPA tip-off location of firearm in Occidental Mindoro

CALAPAN CITY, Oriental Mindoro (PIA) -- A New People’s Army (NPA) member provided information on the location of firearm to the government forces in Occidental Mindoro on Thursday, May 4, 2023.

Troops from the 68th Infantry "Kaagapay" Battalion acted on an information revealed by alias "Samjay," a former SPARU member on the location of a high-powered firearm.

Samjay disclosed that the firearm was left to him by a certain alias "Paulo" who was among the reported armed group on-board two  motorized pump-boats that docked in the vicinity of Sitio Wawa, Brgy. San Nicolas, Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro, that further moved along Mompong River towards Brgy Batong-buhay.

Samjay’s revelation enabled the troops to recover one M16 rifle, two short magazines, and one long magazine with 63 live ammunitions at vicinity Sitio New Island, Malisbong, Sablayan.

"We take this progress as a result of the trust and confidence of our kababayans to the government’s peace effort through the collaboration of our LGUs and key stakeholders. We will further intensify our operations across Mindoro to secure our communities and preempt any atrocities that will be perpetrated by the armed rebels," 2nd Infantry "Jungle Fighter" Division Commander Maj. General Roberto S. Capulong said in a statement. (Press Release from 2ID/GATS/PIA MIMAROPA)
