A suspended barangay chairman was arrested after a hand grenade was recovered in his motorcycle along the highway in Centro Licomo, Zamboanga City at about 7:10 PM on February 22, 2017.
Vitali Police Station identified the arrested official as Eduardo B. Caloyloy of Barangay Licomo. Accordingly, an information was received by Vitali PS that the suspect’s white motorcycle with plate number JA 2499, parked along the road allegedly has a hand grenade within. This prompted the authorities to check the motorcycle and led to the discovery of a black bulky object which revealed an M26 fragmentation hand grenade wrapped in a black nylon cloth attached to its carburetor. The suspect and the confiscated items were brought to the Vitali Police Station for proper disposition.
