Armed men burn heavy equipment in Surigao City

Around 20 suspected members of the rebel New People’s Army torched several heavy equipment last Thursday evening, May 12 in Surigao City.

A spot report from the Surigao City Police Station (SCPS) said the incident occurred around 9:49 p.m. at the quarry site in Sitio Looc in Barangay Luna. Damaged in the incident were one ISUZU dump truck, one KOMATSU backhoe, and one TCM pay loader owned by a certain Enrique Baguio and hired by Tinio Construction who was working on the construction of Gaisano Capital Mall.

The local police authorities suspect communist terrorists were behind the attack, saying that when the armed men burned the back hoe which was situated near the dump truck, they all shouted “NPA Kami” and “that they burn it because the equipment have caused destruction in the area,” a police report revealed.

After learning the incident, SCPS personnel led by PC/Insp. Rudy Elandag immediately ordered the deployment of personnel to conduct investigation and security in the area. Additional troops from the Surigao del Norte Police Provincial Police and Provincial Police Public Safety Company were also deployed to conduct hot pursuit operation to the withdrawing perpetrators.

All line and 30the Infantry “Python” Battalion units were also alerted for possible diversionary tactics of the perpetrators upon withdrawal.

It was learned that the Surigao City Fire Station and the City’s Quick Action Response Team also responded to the area to help control the fire and prevent further damage to the equipments. (PIA-Surigao del Norte)
