SIX Unauthorized Persons Outside Residence (APORs) from Bulacan were arrested by Zambales policemen for possession of falsified certificates of residency when they tried to enter Subic municipality, Zambales Police Provincial Office director Col. Romano Cardiño told the Journal Group.
The six identified as Dryan Jeremy Roberto, 26; his brother Devin James, 25; Dale Justley Roberto, 24; Raymond Alarba, 24; Ryan Christian Ramirez, 24; and Robert Moron, 24, are all residents of Meycauayan City, Bulacan.
In a report to Police Regional Office 3 director Brig. Gen. Valeriano de Leon, the official said that the six were accosted by members of the Subic Municipal Police Station manning the border control point on the national highway in Bgy. Sto. Tomas at 11:30 a.m. last Saturday.
It turned out that the six were in a jitney when they were intercepted by policemen and municipal government employees manning the border point in the province, which is under a Modified General Community Quarantine until August 31.
Cardiño said that while checking the identification papers and other documents of the six, officers noticed that Roberto had no papers, prompting them to advise the latter to go to their holding area to complete the process.
He said that the officers later discovered that the Certificate of Residency they presented did not match the address in their identification cards.
Cardiño said that a check with Bgy. Macarang chairman Gerald Abutin showed that the six were not residents of their barangay, triggering their arrest for falsification of public documents.
