The 49 firearms, Apolinario said, were voluntarily surrendered to Makati police by the Cavisa Security Agency, Inc.

According to data from the Makati police on "Oplan Bilang Boga" the registration of the aforementioned firearms had already expired.

The firearms are now held in custody by the Makati police while waiting for all the necessary documents prepared for their turn to the Firearms and Explosive Division (FED) at Camp Crame, Quezon City.

Apolinario thanked the Cavisa Security Agency for surrendering the firearms with expired licenses. "This only shows how sincere our security partners are in complying with the laws on firearms and ammunition," he said.

Meanwhile, the SPD director urges other arms owners with expired licenses or firearms without a license to hand over their firearms to the nearest police stations in anticipation of the PNP amnesty program.

"Such a thing is a way to help the PNP to take into account all loose firearms in the country," concluded Apolinario.
