LEGAZPI CITY––Government forces on Thursday found an arms cache in a remote area in Bulan town in Sorsogon province.

Maj. Maria Luisa Calubaquib, spokesperson of Bicol police, said in a report Friday that during an operation at 5:10 a.m., police and Army soldiers found 8,190 live rounds of caliber 5.56 mm, two M16 rifles, 48 magazines for M16 rifles, and 19 magazines for M14 rifles in Barangay Calpi.

Calubaquib said the items were inside two blue drums buried in the ground.

“The discovery of the firearms and ammunition is another manifestation that the rebels continue to lose not only their manpower but also their firepower capabilities,” she said in a report. INQ
