Aviation police at the Davao International Airport arrested a passenger bound for Manila who was caught bringing two live 9mm bullets.
Augusto Dagan, 60, was stopped at the airport’s screening checkpoint on Friday when security personnel manning x-ray machines discovered the bullets.
The airport is under the supervision of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).
Airport Area manager Efren Nagrama said Dagan posted a cash bond of P120,000 for his temporary liberty.
The PNP in Davao were on full alert because of the All Saints’ Day.
Last month, Davao aviation police arrested an Australian, Ian Maxwell, 58, for alleged possession of a disassembled but unlicensed .38 caliber gun.
At the Ninoy Aquino International Airport also on Friday, aviation police held two passengers – Pancho M. Salgado and Chris Valerie Panopio Mendoza for possession of 5.56mm Armalite bullet and .45 caliber bullet, respectively.
Police said Salgado was bound for Osaka, Japan, while Mendoza was to fly to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
