Garins surrender guns to police
MANILA, Philippines — Guimbal town Mayor Oscar Garin and his son Iloilo 1st District Rep. Richard Garin surrendered their firearms to the police on Friday, a day after Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Oscar Albayalde ordered the cancellation of their gun permits.
Rep. Garin surrendered nine of his 11 firearms, while Mayor Garin surrendered five of his eight firearms, according to a report from the Bicol police.
Three of the Garins’ firearms were declared lost with corresponding blotter reports to the Guimbal Municipal Police Station. The two remaining guns are supposedly in Manila and will also be surrendered immediately, police said.
All the surrendered firearms were brought to the Regional Civil Security Unit 6.
Albayalde ordered on Thursday the cancellation of the gun permits of the Garins after they reportedly beat up PO3 Federico Macaya Jr. in the said town. /ee
