SIX suspected thieves were arrested by the police in separate carnapping incidents in Quezon City on Tuesday.

Operatives of the Batasan Police Station (PS 6) under PLTCOL Paterno Domondon Jr., arrested Chuck Garcia, 19; Bryan Patrick Mamplata, 20; Regie Francisco, 25; and Ryan Ilig, 22, all residents of Brgy. San Isidro, Rodriguez, Rizal at about 1 a.m. of August 29, 2023 along Kamagong St., Brgy. Commonwealth, Quezon City.

Based on the report, at about 5:30 PM of August 28, 2023, victims Juanito Cederia and Arthur Cabug parked their motorcycles in front of their residence located in Kamagong St., Brgy. Commonwealth, Quezon City.

At 1 a.m. of August 29, 2023, the victims discovered their motorcycles missing.

A witness said she saw Garcia and another suspect on board the motorcycle of Cederia, while Natividad saw Mamplata and Francisco driving the motorcycle of Cabug.

Both victims sought the assistance of PS 6, who immediately conducted a follow-up operation that resulted in the arrest of Garcia.

Confiscated from Garcia were a .38 revolver loaded with three live ammunition and several motorcycle keys.

PS 6 operatives conducted another follow-up operation at Rodriguez, Rizal and arrested the other three suspects.

Recovered from their possessions were three other motorcycles.

Cubao Police Station (PS 7) under PLTCOL Mark Janis Ballesteros arrested Lloyd Beramo Landicho, 35, a resident of Las Piñas City and Spencer Jericho Silverio Tolin, 28, a resident of Brgy. 500, Sampaloc, Manila.

A report shows that Landicho posted on his Facebook account that he was looking for a vehicle for rent. Lyca Sangkal saw Landicho’s FB post and messaged him that she has a motor vehicle for rent at P6,000 per day.

Landicho and Sangkal met at about 11:44 p.m. of August 28, 2023 at the Shell Gasoline Station along 20th Avenue, Brgy. San Roque, Quezon City.

Landicho gave P12,000 to Sangkal as payment for rental of two days and pertinent documents like NBI clearance, Meralco bill and driver’s license to prove his identity.

However, after turning over the vehicle to the suspect, Sangkal noticed some inconsistencies in the documents. This prompted her to report the incident to PS 7 personnel who found out that the documents were falsified, and that suspect Landicho is a member of a carnapping syndicate (Rent-Tangay).

With this information, PS 7 operatives immediately coordinated with the District Anti-Carnapping Unit (DACU) and a follow-up operation was conducted for the possible arrest of the other members of the group. The operation led to the arrest of suspect Spencer Jericho Solvedria Tolin along Bambang St., Sta. Cruz, Manila at 1:50 PM on the same date.

The suspects will be charged for violation of R.A. 10883 or the Anti-Carnapping Act of 2016. Additional charge for violation of R.A. 10591 or the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act will be filed against suspect Garcia before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office.
