Barangay Sibayan, Bansalan, Davao del Sur

Authorities are in pursuit of alleged members of the New People’s Army suspected to have killed four policemen in an ambush in Davao del Sur on Wednesday morning.

Five Davao policemen were on their way to respond to a murder incident in Barangay Sinabyan when suspected members of the New People’s Army ambushed them.

One of them was able to call for help using his mobile phone while in the middle of a gunfire.

Reported dead on the spot are:

  • Po1 Rolly Benelayo
  • Po1 Joe Narvaza
  • Po1 Saro Mangutara
  • Po3 Jayden May Rabor

While PO3 Allen Arnado was reported wounded and brought to a nearby hospital.

Initial investigation shows that Guerilla Front 51 of the NPA is operating in Davao del Sur.

“We will still establish, but by experience no one in our security forces would do that. No one else has the capability to do such a thing”, said PCSupt. Marcelo Morales

PNP is also investigating Sibayan Barangay Captain Eddie Dicdican, who sent for the police about a murder.

“The murder case happened the night before but the police waited until morning because the area in question was too dark. It seemed likely that people were killed there because intel operatives went to the area to verify the incident”, P/CSupt. Morales said.

The police are now investigating the incident and looking for suspects in the crime.

PNP headquarters condoles with the families of the victims and condemns the killing of their colleagues.

“It is sad that this thing needs to happen to those policemen”, PNP spokesperson PSSupt. Diosnardo Carlos said. — Grace Casin |UNTV News & Rescue

“Fake” cop nabbed in Pasay City

by UNTV NEWS   |   Posted on Thursday, April 26th, 2018

Authorities nabbed a motorcycle rider disguised as police at a checkpoint along NAIA road in Pasay City Wednesday.

The suspect, identified as Felix Verona, 35, is actually a tricycle driver and a resident of Velasquez, Tondo in Manila.

Verona, who was wearing a police uniform, was stopped by Pasay City Police personel at the checkpoint at Chapel Road for not wearing a helmet. He was asked to present proper identification but the inspecting authority discovered his ID was fake. Verona later confessed that he has never been a cop.

“Malinaw po na peke ang I.D. niya kasi sa orihinal na PNP ID eh merong middle name ‘yon. Y’ung sa kaniya, inisyal lang, letter C lang…Tsaka yung badge number niya eh malayong-malayo sa edad niya at saka sa serbisyo niya,” PO3 Robinson Alsol, the Pasay police investigator said.

(It is clear that he’s using a fake ID because on an original PNP I.D. the full middle name is printed — his is just an initial letter. And his badge number does not match his age and service.)

When the police further inspected Verona, a four-inch knife was found in his garment.

Verona will face charges for usurpation of authority, illegal use of uniform and insignia for violation of the Omnibus Election Code. —  Asher Cadapan Jr.| UNTV News & Rescue

16.5L liquid cocaine haul near Calaguas Island alarms PNP

by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

The PNP presented to reporters 16.5 liters of liquid cocaine with a street value of P130 million and 28 packets of the illegal substance valued at P280 million.

 

LAGUNA, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Director General Oscar Albayalde on Tuesday expressed concern over the successive discoveries of cocaine in the waters north of the country.

“This is something new sa atin dahil usually nakikita natin dito ay shabu, dito is cocaine. Iyong source niya as of this time di pa natin ma-certain at kung saan ide-deliver,” Albayalde said in a press briefing at Camp Vicente, Laguna Tuesday.

(This is something new to us because we usually see shabu, but this time it’s cocaine. We are uncertain of its source and intended recipient as of this time.)

Albayalde presented before members of media 28 packets of cocaine valued at P280 million  fished in the waters of Camarines Norte on April 15.

The packets of cocaine are aside from a container of suspected liquid cocaine found floating off the waters near Calaguas Island in Camarines Norte last Sunday, April 22. Authorities said the 16.5 liters of liquid substance can be used to make at least 13 kilograms of cocaine which will have a street value of P130 million.

Albayalde said another group of fishermen found a device floating near the waters where the liquid substance was found. The device was later identified as a tracking device.

“Locator ito para makuha kung saan itong mga cocaine na nagfofloat na ito..Already high tech nga lang ito kasi may tracking device ito probably may app ito sa cellphone,” Albayalde explained. The device will be sent to technical experts for further examination.

(It is a locator that tracks these floating cocaine…they are already high tech because it uses a tracking device which probably has an app on the cellphone.)

The PNP chief thanked the fishermen for not taking advantage of the contraband. He promised to assist them in claiming their reward from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) for their efforts.

Meanwhile, police are still tracing the origin of the discovered illegal substance. — Japhet Cablaida | UNTV News & Rescue

Malacañang to release detailed report on drug-related killings

by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque

 

Malacañang is planning to disclose next week a detailed report on drug-related killings in legitimate operations held by the Philippine National Police (PNP).

This is in response to calls from the international community critical of the Duterte administration’s war on drugs campaign.

“In a few months, I will have a file each for every killing reported by the PNP indicating that there was no excessive use of force,” Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Harry Roque said.

Roque added that “if there’s reason to file charges against the killers,” he will encourage such move to clear accusations that the government is not acting on the issues of drug-related killings in the country. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue
