Army seizes NPA arms cache in Misamis Oriental

MANILA — Troopers from the 4th Infantry Division captured a New People’s Army (NPA) arms cache during an hour-long firefight in SitioIlaja, Barangay Aposkahoy, Claveria town, Misamis Oriental Wednesday.

Captured were an M-16 automatic rifle, one carbine, one unexploded improvised explosive device, 14 blasting caps; two cellular phones, two ICOM radios, 20 backpacks, a solar panel; linked ammunition for K-3 machinegun; a voter’s ID; and subversive documents.

The troops were on security patrol during that time.
