In a report posted on Facebook, the Malitbog Municipal Police Station identified the suspects as Frankie Louis Ong, a candidate for vice mayor, and Regie Dominguez, an incumbent kagawad of Barangay Kalingking, Malitbog.


The report said the firearms seized from the suspects included a caliber .45 pistol, a Turkish-made shotgun, an Armed Lethal I shotgun, two Bushmaster rifles, assorted ammunition, and other military articles.


Police said they received information from local residents that a brown Nissan Navara pickup truck with plate number KAC 6542 in Barangay Impahanong was carrying firearms.


Two policemen, Patrolman Ivan Quiño and Patrolman Jayson Galendez, along with members of the Army’s 16th Infantry Battalion, conducted a visual search of the vehicle and saw the muzzle of a gun protruding from a black rifle bag, the report said.


The suspects were then ordered to alight from the vehicle before the policemen and soldiers started a search that yielded the firearms and other items.


The vehicle was registered in the name of Ong.


Ong and Dominguez are currently detained at the municipal police station. (H. Marcos C. Mordeno / MindaNews)
