SAN Pascual, Batangas -- Police on Tuesday confiscated several ammunition and magazines for different kinds of firearms at the house of an overseas Filipino worker in Bgy. San Mateo, said Batangas Police Public Information Office OIC Senior Insp. Hazel Luma-ang.

Acting Batangas police director Senior Supt. Randy Quines Peralta identified the suspect as Menandro Mauhay Calingasan, 51, married, OFW, of Bgy. San Mateo, San Pascual.
   
Reports said that at 10:30 p.m., police deputy Chief Insp. John Ganit Relllian, of the San Pascual Police Station, led a team to implement the search warrant against Calingasan issued by Judge Cynthia Marino Ricablanca, of RTC Branch 27, of Sta. Cruz, Laguna, dated April 11, 2017 at his residence in Bgy. San Mateo.
   
During the search, police confiscated four magazines and one live ammo for M-16 rifle, seven live ammo and 22 fired cartridge casings for cal. .45 and a live ammo for cal. .38.
 
Unfortunately, the subject person, who was the suspect in the shooting incident that transpired on April 2, 2017, in Bgy. San Mateo, which resulted in the death of a certain Nolly Gonzales, was not around when the team implemented the warrant, said Peralta.
   
Inventories, photographs and markings of confiscated evidence were witnessed by Benidicto Grinio, media representative, Kagawad Arlene Hernandez and Chairman Larry Ramos of the said barangay.
   
The recovered evidence were brought to the Batangas Provincial Crime Laboratory Office for proper disposition.
