Senior citizen surrenders 1917 Eddiston rifle

Tinoc, Ifugao (15 May) -- A senior citizen here is the latest violator of the Commission On Elections (COMELEC) gun ban in the province.

Chief of Police, Senior Inspector Carame Jr, said that at about 11:40 AM on May 11, a team of police and army, heard a gun shot and when they rushed to the vicinity, they found Alfonso Pitoy y Duyapat, 75 years old, holding his rifle.

Pitoy explained to the authorities that he was shooting a monkey. He surrendered his Eddiston rifle, 1917 model, one live ammo and an empty shell of cal. 30, Carame said.

Pitoy, a farmer and resident of barangay Gumhang, here surrendered the said ammunitions to SPO1 Ben Gabino and Sgt Riolando Barrientos of the Philippine Army assigned at Bravo Company 54th IB, 5th ID based at Ibulao, in Kiangan. The said army group was assigned here to help provide security this election.

Provincial Police Director, PSSupt Laurence Mombael said despite his age, Pitoy is still covered by the COMELEC gun ban which will be lifted on June 30, 2010. However, we will wait for the decision of the court, he added.

Meanwhile, PNP members assigned at police security and protection group and presently detailed at the Office of the Governor, confiscated semi stainless short firearm most likely described as 1911A1 cal 45 Norinco pistol without license and with one magazine and three live ammos from Ryan Pumihic, 29, at Barangay Mungayang in Kiangan last May 10.
