CAMP SIONGCO, Maguindanao – A man in possession of a loaded gun was caught by the Army’s 90th Infantry Battalion at a checkpoint on Monday, November 18, 2019, in Barangay Kiladap, Talitay, Maguindanao.

The suspect, identified as Zaidbunan Esmael, a resident of Barangay Tambunan of Talayan town, was caught with a calibre .45 pistol with 2 magazines and 16 rounds of ammunition.

Esmael was riding a black Honda HRM motorcycle when he was caught at the military checkpoint.

Last November 12, two men riding a motorcycle were also caught carrying a loaded handgun at the same checkpoint.

“As a reminder, individuals bringing firearms illegally possessed and without proper documentation are subject to possible criminal charges,” the Commander stressed.
