QUEZON CITY (DWDD) – A bomb training aid was discovered 11 0’clock this morning by a trash collector in Barangay Lipunan, Crame, Quezon City.
According to Supt Edwin Ellazar, Officer-in-Charge-Explosive Ordnance Division, K9 Group, Camp Crame, the said bomb posed no threat in any way to the residents of the said area since it contained no explosive materials.
It was discovered by a certain Arnold Hortillano Golbin while they were picking up thrash along 4th street. Residents immediately informed a police officer who happened to be in a nearby tailor shop.
Responding EOD personnel, donning a bomb suit, immediately inspected the device made up sticks of dinamite and a timer, which turned out to be a dud, since it was just a an inert training aid similar to what ordnance units are using for practice.
Supt Ellazar believes that the incident was more of a scare tactic than a means to hurt or to kill and they are still investigating the motives and the person or group behind the incident. AES / ALS
