MANILA, Philippines — Two alleged carnappers died on the spot after resisting police arrest in Brgy. Vasra, Quezon City at around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday (January 17).
The suspects were identified as Ian Diaz and a certain alias “Jessy”.
Police Senior Superintendent Enrico Vargas said, the QCPD Anti-Carnapping Section and Special Operations Unit immediately conducted a buy-bust operation after an informant tipped them about the suspects’ illegal activities and hideout.
“Nagkaroon tayo ng magandang information na nagtuturo na nandito nakatira at dito nila dinadala ‘yung mga kina-carnap nilang mga motor. So, nagkaroon ng transaction kanina,” Vargas said.
However, the suspects soon realized they were transacting with police officers and decided to fight it out with authorities.
“Then, nung medyo naramdaman nilang pulis ang kanilang katransaksyon ay bumunot at inunahan yung pulis natin. So, nagkaroon ng encounter,” Vargas explained.
Meanwhile, the suspects’ victim positively identified his stolen motorbike.
The victim said the suspects accosted him while he was on his motorbike traversing Broadway Avenue in Quezon City on Tuesday night (January 15).
He said he feared for his life when one of the suspects pointed a gun at him while inside a car.
“Ginitgit lang po nila ako eh. Akala ko po kasi nung una, o-overtake lang sila sa akin. Nag-blink sila sa akin, dalawang beses, kaya pinauna ko po sila. Nung tumapat na sila sa gilid ko, at saka nila ako ginitgit, tapos ‘yun nga po, bumaba sila, kinuha na nila ang motor ko. Meron sila baril; nakatutok sa’kin,” said the victim.
A .45 calibre gun and a .357-calibre revolver, 2 motorcycles and a Honda Beat motorcycle were seized from the suspects. The authorities are still looking into the suspects’ identities to see if they are connected with the widespread carnapping incidents in Quezon City. — Asher Cadapan | UNTV News & Rescue
MANILA, Philippines— The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) will deploy 50 police officers in civilian clothes to ensure security during the promulgation of the Maguindanao Massacre case on December 19, 2019.
This is apart from the more than the 200 Special Action Force (SAF) troopers and the Civil Disturbance Management Unit that have been initially tasked by the NCRPO to guard the security in the Metropolis.
According to NCRPO acting director PBGen. Debold Sinas, they will implement a lockdown inside the Camp Bagong Diwa-Taguig so that no untoward incident will slip through them during the promulgation.
“They already approved na mag lock down kami ibig sabihin yung ibang jail na nandoon di ba 6 jails ang nandoon pero lahat sila hindi na mag aaccept ng bisita on the 18th and the 19th,” Sinas said.
He added that they will not let any protest rallies be staged inside and outside the camp as this will stall traffic flow.
Sinas also assured that the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) will strictly guard the security of Judge Jocelyn Solis-Reyes, as well as, the prosecutors.
“Ngayon pa lang sini secure na natin ang judge. After the promulgation continue pa rin yung security natin sa kanya until such time na she will feel normal. Including yung prosecutor,” he added.
To date, authorities have yet to receive any threat against Reyes, the prosecutors, and even in the venue where the promulgation will take place. — (from the report of Lea Ylagan) /mbmf
