Caibiran, Biliran — The Sangguniang Kabataan Chairman of one of the barangays here is presently jailed after he was arrested for illegal possession of unlicensed firearm about 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16 near the shoreline of Brgy. Looc here.
Caibiran COP Police Lt. Vic Viros identified the suspect as Allen Llorono y Montajes, 20, single, elected SK Chairman, and a resident of Brgy. Bariis, Caibiran, Biliran.
Initial investigation disclosed that a call from a concerned citizen to the police station about a commotion in the said place was responded to by the local police.

Elorde, Police Corporal Rommel R. Gervacio and Police Corporal Ronald C. Cesora immediately arrested the suspect who was under the influence of intoxicating liquor and creating trouble.
During the arrest, the police noticed a firearm was tucked at the back of Llorono’s waist, which was subsequently seized by the apprehending officers. The police asked the suspect if he has legal documents for carrying the firearms, but suspect failed to present any. This prompted the police to read to the suspect the Miranda Doctrine about his constitutional rights.
Recovered from the suspect’s possession was a cal .38 revolver with marking SMITH & WISSON with Serial No. 69388, loaded with five (5) unfired cartridges of the same caliber.
