RIZAL policemen Sept 14 arrested two of the four suspects in the killing of a policeman over a heated argument in Taytay, Rizal last Sept. 7.

Rizal Police Provincial Office Officer-in-Charge Colonel Rainerio M. De Chavez identified the suspects as Eleo Belda, alias ‘Bonbon,’ and his brother Carlos Jr. alias ‘Nonoy,’

The two were arrested in a construction site inside the Kelcy Subdivision in Barangay Muzon, San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan.

De Chavez said that ‘Bonbon’ also surrendered the 9mm pistol of their victim, Police Staff Sergeant Allan Guimpayan.

The arrest of the two suspects came amid Rizal PNP’s relentless efforts to get them with the help of other police operating units.

The two were identified as among the men who attacked and killed Guimpayan in an eatery in Taytay last September 7.

According to reports, the victim was having dinner at the Kamunyang Tapsihan and Pares at Block 7, Purok 2 in Sampaguitan Avenue, C-6 Road, Lupang Arenda in Barangay Sta. Ana around 12:50 a.m. of that day.

While eating, the four men, including the arrested two, approached the policeman and a heated argument ensued.

At the height of their argument, the suspects attacked and mauled the policeman who tried hard to defend himself.

One of the four men took the cop’s gun and shot him several times in the body. The victim died on the spot.

Members of the Taytay MPS who were informed of the incident immediately conducted a hot pursuit operation which resulted in the arrest of two of the suspects, Caroso Poblador Belda Sr. alias ‘Pulding,’ and his son Dexter alias ‘Bibe.’

The two other suspects who are also sons of Belda Sr. managed to escape until they were tracked down and arrested two weeks ago.

Col. De Chavez said that a record check showed that Belda Sr. and Caroso Jr. have been previously charged for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, RA 10591 or the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulations Act of 2013, illegal discharge of firearm and violation of Batas Pambansa 6 or illegal possession of bladed weapon and Presidential Decree 1602 or the anti-illegal gambling law.

On the other hand, ‘Bonbon’ was found to be among the Lupang Arenda residents who surrendered to the local police at the height of the implementation of the Oplan: Tokhang during the previous Duterte administration.

All four arrested suspects are also facing criminal charges for murder and direct assault upon a person of an agent of authority.
