CAFGU nabbed for loose gun
A member of the Civilian Armed Forces Geographical Unit was arrested Sunday by members of the Philippine Army in Brgy. Kapitan Ramon, Silay City, for illegal possession of firearms.
CAFGU member Lemuel Paunillan, who is assigned at the Tinampaan detachment in Cadiz City, was arrested by a team led by Sgt. Richie Dugenio, based on the complaint of kagawad Salvacion Corugda, for illegal discharge of firearms and violation of Republic Act 10591, or the unlawful acquisition, or possession of firearms and ammunition.
Paunillan, who was turned over to the Silay police by his Army captors, was disarmed of his unlicensed .38 caliber revolver with an empty shell and a slug. He is now detained at the Silay police lock-up cell, pending the filing of charges against him.
The Army said he faces dismissal from the military service for illegal discharge of firearms.
In Brgy. Camingawan, Kabankalan City, two armed suspects, who shot and injured a victim they were trying to rob, managed to elude arrest by a team of CAFGU members.
In his report to Senior Supt. Milko Lirazan, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, Supt. Salvador Dagoon said the two suspects forcibly entered the residence of Jesus and Roselyn Artocilla, and declared a hold-up.
Jesus was hit in the neck when he was shot by one of the suspects, while he was trying to seek the help of CAFGU members stationed in the place, investigations of the Kabankalan police showed.
Dagoon said Jesus survived the attempt on his life, but the suspects were nowhere to be found when CAFGU members responded to the incident.*GPB
Charges for robbery and illegal possession of a firearm were filed 3 p.m. Monday before the Bacolod City Prosecutor’s Office, against a man linked to a string of robbery cases in Bacolod City.
Senior Insp. Edgar Gulmatico, Station 3 chief, said they are preparing the documents for the filing of murder charges against Angelo Gabriel, 25, of Brgy. 28 in Bacolod.
Witnesses pointed to Gabriel as the one responsible for the fatal shooting of Roy Dairo, 48, of Purok Pepsi Zone 3 in Brgy. Bata, who had chased him for robbing the house of Imari June Blanca, 25, also in the purok, last month, Gulmatico said.
At about 9 p.m. Sunday, Gabriel was nabbed and mauled by residents of Purok Mahimayaon in Brgy. Bata when he entered the house of Christian Erwin Paduano, 21, and stole his iPhone 3G, worth P20,000, the police said.
A .22 caliber magnum revolver, with three live bullets recovered from Gabriel, was turned over to the PNP Crime Laboratory, Gulmatico said.
The suspect had earlier used the fictitious name of Fritz Eric Consejan, but was identified later as Angelo Gabriel by his family, when they went to the Station 3.
Gulmatico said the suspect will face added charges for using a fictitious name and for tricking the police.
Supt. Jefferson Descallar, BCPO deputy chief for operations, said yesterday that Gabriel is considered notorious, armed and dangerous, since he had already killed a person. Complainants also identified him as the suspect in several robbery cases in the areas of Police Stations 3 and 4 in Bacolod.
The police are still verifying a report that Gabriel had been using and selling illegal drugs, Descallar said.
They are also checking the Records and Subpoena Section of BCPO, to see whether Gabriel has pending warrants of arrest.*SGG
