Grenades, gun found abandoned in Ilocos Norte

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines – Seven grenades and one gun were recovered near a bridge in Paoay, Ilocos Norte, on Thursday, June 6.

The local police said these were found inside a sack at Laoa Bridge in Barangay Laoa.

Paoay Police Chief Eddie Suyat said that a goat herder, Froilan Bagasol, discovered the sack while herding his goats.

Suyat said the sack had been submerged in the silt which meant it was there for a long time.

Bagasol immediately contacted their barangay captain who then called the police.

The explosives are now at the Explosive Ordnance Division of the Ilocos Norte Police Provincial Office in Laoag City. –
