76 guns released to court,
local SOCO chief relieved

The 76 guns seized by the police from the ancestral house of Mayor Magdaleno Peña in Barangay Ubay, Pulupandan, on May 2 have been released to the custody of the court after a Writ of Replevin sought by the mayor’s son was granted, his lawyer Roem Arbolado said yesterday.

On Monday, Pulupandan mayor-elect Miguel Peña filed a civil case before the Regional Trial Court in Bacolod City against two police officials to recover 76 of the 90 firearms and ammunition, valued at P2 million, seized from the ancestral house.

On Thursday, Bacolod RTC Branch 43 Judge Fernando Elumba, in a four-page order, issued a writ of replevin, allowing the recovery of the 76 firearms and the corresponding ammunition, magazines and accessories “after finding the complaint legally sufficient in form and substance”.moremoremore
