Recovered stolen blasting items not terrorism-related
by Ofelia C. Empian

The stolen blasting materials that were recovered recently in Quirino Hill, Baguio City are not related to terrorism, police said.

Police Regional Office-Cordillera Director C/Supt. Rolando Nana said the recovered cache of dynamites and other bomb materials on Sept. 6 are intended for mining activities in Benguet. “Ginagamit ito sa mining sa Itogon. Wala itong connection sa terrorism,” Nana said.

Benguet Provincial Police Director, S/Supt. Lyndon Mencio, said the explosive materials, which were earlier reported as stolen from a private establishment, were recovered from an empty house in Tapao West, Upper Quirino Hill.

Mencio said a total of 19 sacks of ammonium nitrate at 25 kilos each, detonating cords and several boxes of blasting caps were recovered at the scene.

He said that they were able to apprehend one of the suspects who allegedly is a small-scale miner.

They refused to reveal the identity of the suspect pending investigation.

Mencio said only a portion of the cache stolen last Sept. 2 was recovered. He added that if the blasting materials were not stored properly, it might have caused a huge explosion that could obliterate nearby areas where the empty house stands.

In the morning of Sept. 2, Itogon police reported that unidentified men robbed a magazine depot owned by Nena Camolo Caccam at Camisong, Loacan in Itogon. The suspects cut the interlink fence then dug into the walls of the three storage facilities.

Police said the missing items in the depot included 55 sacks of ammonium nitrate worth P99,000; three boxes of ordinary blasting caps worth P576,000 with 10,000 caps per box; 11 boxes of safety fuse worth P252,000; four boxes of detonating cord worth P128,000 and one box of dynamite emulsion worth P4,800.

According to the police, the items worth P1,169,800 were stolen by the suspects using two vehicles.
