The surrender of one Ka Reymond came after the personnel of Nampicuan PNP and Alpha Company 84th IB 7ID, Phil. Army facilitated the documentation for the voluntary surrender of Reymond, former member of CPP-NPA and squad medical officer under the command of Ka Arcadio Peralta, and turned in one caliber .38 revolver without serial number loaded with two live ammunitions.
