Bomb sniffing dogs were put to work Thursday afternoon when authorities noticed that a car has been left overnight at the vicinity of the newly-opened airport.

Chief Superintendent Catalino Rodriguez, Region 10 police office director, said bomb experts checked on a Toyota Avanza with license plate YFP 324, but recovered only spray paints.

“There wasn’t any bomb,” he said.

Asked who could be the owner of the vehicle, Rodriguez said it was owned by a leasing corporation.

Several explosion incidents have been reported in Mindanao over the past few days.
