Recovered were 2,343 rounds of 7.62 ball ammunition, 5,000 rounds of 7.62 linked ammunition, six clipped magazines with eight rounds of ammunition each, 150 rounds of caliber.30 M1 ball carbine ammunition and 3,460 linked rounds believed to be of 30 caliber ammunitions.

He said members of the CTG surrendered and tipped-off the 9th Infantry (Sandigan) Battalion (9IB) about the stash of ammunition.

In response to the information, government troops with the help of the Philippine National Police (PNP) conducted a joint security operation in the area where they spotted and seized different war materials.
