Elderly Fil-Am caught with box of bullets at NAIA
Rondaris Rufino, 79, was arrested at the airport for concealing in his hand carried bag a box of imported live .25 caliber ammunition.
Rufino was a transient passenger of Philippine Airlines flight PR 103 from Los Angeles to Laoag, Ilocos Sur when intercepted by security screeners at NAIA Terminal 2.
"Nakita ko po na may suspicious image sa monitor ng x-ray kaya po pina-identify namin kung sino ang may ari at doon po namin nakita ang isang kahon ng bala," said Airport Security Screener Dominique Halog.
For his part, Rufino denied owning the box of bullets. He also does not know how the box ended up inside his hand carried luggage.
