COTABATO CITY – Police and military on Tuesday recovered assault rifles and explosives in a raid on the house of a suspected terrorist in Datu Odin Sinsuat town in Maguindanao.

Capt. Arvin Encinas, civil-military operations chief of the Army’s 6th Infantry Division, on Wednesday said the joint anti-terror operation of elements from the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group and the 6th infantry division in a safehouse in Dimapatoy village resulted in the seizure of arms cache and arrest of a certain Kamarudin Butocan Raguiab.

Encinas said the operatives were responding to an intelligence report of the presence of suspicious-looking armed men, who were not in the vicinity during the early morning raid.

Recovered from Raguiab’s house were a sniper rifle, a Pal-jet automatic rifle, a rocket-propelled grenade rifle, two M16 and one M203 rifles, a M653 telescopic rifle, an AK47, a carbine, two shotguns, one caliber .45 pistol, four improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and a rifle grenade.
