A GUN-TOTING 28-year-old carwash boy was hauled to jail by patrolling Laguna policemen late Wednesday night in Cabuyao City after a concerned citizen informed them of the suspect’s presence, Laguna Police Provincial Office (LPPO) Director Colonel Randy Glenn G. Silvio said yesterday.
In a report to Police Regional Office 4-A (PRO 4-A) Director Brig. Gen. Jose Melencio C. Nartatez Jr., Silvio said the suspect was a resident of Barangay Baclaran in Cabuyao City.
According to the Laguna police director, two members of the Cabuyao City Police Station, Master Sergeant Arvin Calderon, and Patrolman Efraim Decena, were on patrol duty when a concerned citizen approached them and reported the presence of the suspect, whom he saw carrying a gun.
Silvio said that the two policemen went to investigate and later accosted the suspect in front of a fast-food restaurant branch in Bgy. Banlic around 9:20 p.m. Wednesday.
When confronted, the suspect yielded a backpack containing a caliber 9mm Taurus semi-automatic pistol with a magazine loaded with four live ammunition.
The suspect was arrested after failing to present any documents regarding the legitimacy of his gun.
Silvio said that the suspect is now being held at the Cabuyao Police jail facing charges of violation of Republic Act 10591 or the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulations Act of 2013. By ALFRED DALIZON & Gil Aman
