A man was arrested after a deadly weapon and several ammunitions were seized from his possession earlier morning of March 6 at San Pedro Drive, Barangay Veterans Village, City Proper, Iloilo City.

Police identified the suspect as Remy Diamante, 25, also a resident of Veterans Village.

Seized from his possession were five ammunitions for a 12-gauge shotgun, a 9-inch knife, and a butane canister.

In its press release, the Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO) stated that Diamante and a certain alias Alog, 25 of Barangay Tanza-Bonifacio, City Proper, were caught in a pot session,

However, there were no illegal drugs taken from Diamante while Alog and another person, possibly a minor, evaded arrest.

According to reports, a concerned citizen called the Iloilo City Police Station 1 and reported an ongoing pot session in the area.

Alog and the “minor” quickly scampered while police were left to arrest Diamante.

The suspect even acted unruly by shouting and taking off his shirt.

He was eventually subdued and put behind bars.

Diamante is now detained and will face charges for violation of Republic Act 10591 (Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act) and City Ordinance No. 138 for Carrying a Deadly Weapon.
