The Philippine National Police (PNP) - Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) recovered more explosives buried in a vacant lot at the sugar mill compound owned by former Negros Oriental governor Henry Pryde Teves in Barangay Sta. Catalina, Negros Oriental.

In a report by RH Val Gonzales on Monday, PNP-CIDG had seized explosive devices (IED), rocket-propelled grenades (RPG), firearms, and bullets worth almost Php 19 million using a backhoe.

The items were buried in a 10 feet deep pit.

The PNP-CIDG is looking at the connection of the seized explosives and firearms to the Communist Party of the Philippines - New People's Army (CPP-NPA) in Central Mindanao.
