Cops, Army find buried NPA firearm, bomb-making tools in Batangas

An unidentified man, believed to be a "salvage" or summary execution victim, was found in Tanauan City in Batangas province on Wednesday, Oct. 19, police said.

LUCENA CITY — State security forces on Monday recovered a firearm, equipment for bomb production, and antigovernment documents that were allegedly buried by New People’s Army (NPA) rebels in Nasugbu town in Batangas province.

Batangas police reported Tuesday, Oct. 25, that police and Army soldiers swooped down around 9:30 a.m. in Sitio (sub-village) Sapang in Barangay Utod, to serve a warrant of arrest to Yolanda Caraig, an alleged NPA “amazona” (female rebel) who was reportedly hiding in the area.


The government forces failed to locate their target and instead found an abandoned nipa house. The team noticed that the dirt floor of the shack was newly dug.


They discovered a buried plastic bag that allegedly contained one caliber .38 revolver with six bullets, blasting caps, detonating cords and other components for bomb production, Communist Party of the Philippines documents, and a hammer and sickle flag.

The police are conducting investigations and further searches in the area as of Tuesday morning.
