JONES, Isabela — Heavy equipment owned by a construction company were burned on Monday (July 3) by armed men in Maddela town in Quirino province.

Gilbert Buyuccan, Cabua-an barangay chairman (village chairman), spotted six men on motorcycles burn two cement mixers, two backhoes, and a steam roller of the APD Construction Company in Sitio (subvillage) Anipto at 2 a.m., said Chief Insp. Ricardo Salada, Maddela police chief. The armed men fled towards Ismael village.


In April 29, communist rebels attacked a Maddela town police station, killing PO2 Jerome Cardenas. The rebels seized police weapons and three police vehicles before retreating towards the foothills of Manglad village. Along the way, the armed men allegedly torched a dump truck owned by RBI Jr. Construction Company.

On March 27, two backhoes owned by the RD Interior were burned at a bridge construction site in Villa Ysmael village also in Maddela town.  SFM
