Rebels ransack official’s house

ARMED men, believed to be members of the New People’s Army (NPA), ransacked the house of a barangay official in Talomo River, Calinan District on Friday.

The men introduced themselves as members of the New People’s Army and took two firearms owned by Barangay Councilor Felix Sabio around 2:40 p.m. Friday.

They carted a carbine with five loaded magazines and one caliber .45 pistol with four loaded magazines, said Chief Insp. Nolan Raquid, the precinct commander of Calinan Police.

“When they arrived at the place, the group asked where is the house of Councilor Sabio,” Raquid said.

Once inside the house, the suspects destroyed the padlocked bedroom of the barangay councilor.

The suspects tied the councilor’s son.

The group carted the councilor’s firearms as they left on board three motorcycles, going towards the direction of Barangay Pangyan, also in Calinan District.

Raquid said they are still conducting further investigation to validate if the group was indeed NPAs.
