2 alleged guns-for-hire killed in Antipolo encounter

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, August 6th, 2018

Two suspected members of the Landingin gun- for-hire group were killed in an encounter with police in Barangay Pantok, Binangonan, Rizal.

Authorities on Sunday were closely monitoring the suspects’ movements from Rodriguez, Rizal to an apartelle in Antipolo where the joint forces of Binangonan Police and Highway Patrol Group cornered the alleged hitmen.

Rizal Provincial Director Police Senior Superintendent Lou Frias Evangelista said, “Ito, kapag bumibira sila, ayon sa amin impormasyon na ito ang ginagamit nilang hide-out. Kapag umistrayk sila sa ibang lugar, halimbawa sa Rodriguez then dito sila magpapahinga, Antipolo, sa ibang lugar naman.”

(Based on information we received, the suspects use this apartelle as a hideout during an operation. When they strike in one place, in Rodriguez for instance, they run away to Antipolo to cool down.)

The suspects were identified as Jeffrey Landingin, the group’s leader, and Richard Alcantara.

Authorities recovered one .40 caliber pistol and three .45 caliber handguns from the two.

A series of killings in Rizal province prompted the authorities to monitor the duo.

“Hopefully, yung mga na-gather nating evidence ay magsasabi na sila yung mga responsible sa mga killing dito sa Rizal,” PSSupt. Evangelista said.

(Hopefully the evidence we have gathered can conclusively prove that they were responsible for the killings in Rizal.)

He added that the suspects may have been involved in the killings of San Mateo, Rizal barangay captain, Danilo Laciste and former policeman Rudolfo Lico. — Jennica Cruz

Clean rider sticker on a motorcycle; NCRPO chief Guillermo Eleazar

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Motorcycles are commonly used as getaway vehicles by riding-in-tandem criminals.

In fact, the Philippine National Police (PNP) recorded a total of 959 crime incidents involving motorcycle-riding suspects in the second quarter of the year alone.

This prompted authorities to launch today (August 1) the clean rider stickers in a nationwide scale.

PNP Chief PDG Oscar Albayalde explained that motorcycle bearing the sticker would be allowed an easy pass in checkpoints. The sticker will also spare the rider from being suspected of crimes in their area.

The PNP Chief reiterated that the stickers are free of charge.

To avail of the sticker, the motorcycle owner needs to go to the nearest police station and present the vehicle’s OR-CR. In case the vehicle is registered under a different name, present the deed of sale, driver’s license and two government IDs.

The PNP assures that all applicants for the stickers will be subjected under careful background investigation. – Lea Ylagan / Marje Pelayo
