On March 28, Philippine authorities found an assault rifle and over 1,600 rounds of live ammunition on a sugar mill compound supposedly owned by former Negros Oriental governor Pryde Henry Teves in Sta. Catalina town. The Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, which has been searching the compound since March 26, seized the items, along with other high-powered firearms, explosives, and over PHP 18 million (around $351,000) in cash. Teves’ older brother, suspended Negros Oriental Third District Rep. Arnolfo “Arnie” Teves Jr. had also been eyed as an alleged mastermind in the Degamo killing. Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla earlier said that Teves might be implicated in the murder of Negros Oriental governor Roel Degamo due to the guns, ammunition, and explosives found in his compound.
