ROXAS CITY – Some 49 “expired” firearms were donated to the Roxas City Police Station on November 19.

Leading the turnover rites at the city police headquarters at Barangay Lawaan here was Mayor Ronnie Dadivas, who said that these weapons have not been renewed for years.

Dadivas thanked the Sangguniang Panlungsod for letting the city government donate the said firearms.

The city police received 29 pistols and 20 rifles.

Lt. Col. Ricardo Jomuad Jr., city police chief, said these donations would help the police in terms of logistical gaps.*
