Drug suspects

MANILA, Philippines — Four males were arrested Monday
(January 21) at around 1:00 a.m. while in the middle of a pot session on Luzon Avenue, Barangay Holy Spirit. Two of the suspects were minors and residents of the area.

Operatives of the Quezon City Police District Station Drug Enforcement Unit were supposed to conduct a buy-bust operation in another location when they caught a whiff of marijuana as they passed by the area where the four suspects were allegedly smoking pot.

Two sachets of alleged dried marijuana leaves and drug paraphernalia were seized from the suspects.

“Nagsisisi po. Wala na po. Huli na po ako,” said one of men who goes by the alias, “Tristan”.

Barangay executive officer Nestor del Rosario said that the suspects were notorious drug users but have never been apprehended until now.

“Mga positibo ‘yan na mga gumagamit talaga,” said Del Rosario.

The minors will be placed under the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

The two other suspects are facing drug charges for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. — Asher Cadapan | UNTV News & Rescue

slain suspect

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

Cops prohibited from drinking in public — DILG

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año has directed the Philippine National Police (PNP) to release an order that prohibits cops from drinking in public places.

Año said this in compliance with President Rodrigo Duterte’s directive prohibiting police officers from drinking in bars, nightclubs and other
public areas.

The secretary said that senior police officials should serve as role models to their colleagues.

He added that the president is correct in saying the public loses respect for the police when they are seen drinking in public.

“Nakakahiya at masagwang makita na may mga pulis na nag-iinuman sa publiko. The job of the police requires the respect of the people, therefore they must do what it takes to gain and maintain public trust,” Año said.

Violators of the new ordinance may face administrative charges. — UNTV News & Rescue
