BALANGA, Bataan -- An off-duty security guard was arrested for possession of an unlicensed gun loaded
with ammunition in Bgy. Burgos-Soliman, Hermosa town, the other day.

A report reaching Chief Supt. Amador Corpus, Police Regional Office 3 director, identified the
suspect as Alexander Curom, 36, resident of the said town.
Investigation showed that Curom was on board a motorcycle and cruising along MacArthur Highway
where an anti-criminality police checkpoint was established.
When flagged down for a routine inspection, policemen noticed that the security guard was
acting uneasy. When asked to open his sling bag, a cal. .38 revolver loaded with six live ammunition
was found inside.
Asked for pertinent documents for the gun, the suspect failed to show any, prompting the
policemen to place him under arrest for violation of RA 10591 or the Comprehensive Firearm and
Ammunition Regulation Act.
