Sultan Kudarat police seize 35,000 dynamite sticks


ISULAN, Sultan Kudarat: Police in the province warned on Sunday farmers in Sitio Kaloloy, Barangay Bai Saripinang, Bagumbayan, who reportedly took custody of some of the more than 30,000 dynamite sticks recovered by police and military authorities on Saturday. Senior Supt. Raul Supiter, Sultan Kudarat police provincial director, aired his warning and appeal after police and elements of the 57th Infantry Battalion recovered about 35,000 pieces of dynamites in an abandoned gold and copper mining site. “Those who kept the explosives should coordinate with the police, surrender the dynamites to avoid criminal charges,” Supiter told the Philippine News Agency. Supiter said residents accidentally discovered the explosives in an abandoned mining site of Ippo China Mining Company in Barangay Saripinang, Bagumbayan, Sultan Kudarat at about 11:00 a.m. on Saturday. “We have retrieved the explosives but there were reports some were already taken by farmers before the authorities reached the area,” Supiter said.
