Returning of company-issued gadgets after resignation

I just want to know if the company can legally force me to return the company-issued gadgets after resignation even if the company has not paid my previous salaries.  

Here's the situation, the company has stopped paying our salaries which started last April 2014 due to financial problem.  After about 3 months, I decided not to go to work anymore but promised to return when the company gets some fundings.  

Technically, the company owes me about 3 months of my salary. Now, I'm planning to resign but I'm afraid they might ask me to return the gadgets.  Legally, can I hold these gadgets until they pay my salary?

Toffee: I believe that you cannot keep the company owned gadgets by reason of non-payment of salaries for 3 months. You very well know that the same were issued to you, therefore you have an obligation to return..otherwise the company might file a theft case against you.

If you want to enforce payment of your unpaid salary, advice is file a labor case with the NLRC.
