Carnapping charges were filed yesterday against a policeman, his live-in partner, and her companion for the alleged theft of the motorcycle of a police trainee in Bacolod City, last week.
Police Officer 1 Wenefredo Casuyod, his partner Grace Teruel, 24, both of Brgy. 40 and Mylene Simson, 19, of Brgy. Banago, all in Bacolod, were charged before the Bacolod City Prosecutor’s Office, Insp. Stephen Boniba, Station 2 chief, said.
Boniba said complainant Police Officer 1 Raffy Gregorio of Brgy. 16 in Bacolod, parked the red Honda XRM motorcycle, that he had borrowed from his friend, whose name was not disclosed, beside the Police Station 2 at 19th-Lacson streets on September 9, 2014.
Gregorio, who is on training at the Station 2, discovered only on September 11, that the motorcycle, which had flat tires, was missing, Boniba said.
He said Gregorio failed to inform his colleagues that he had left the motorcycle near their station.
At about 6:10 a.m. yesterday, the motorcycle was seen being driven by a woman, later identified as Teruel, with Simson as passenger in Barangay 3, Bacolod, Boniba said.
It was positively identified by Gregorio, Boniba said, adding that Teruel and Simson were taken to the police station.
Teruel and Simson alleged that they had borrowed the motorcycle from Casuyod, who is also assigned at Police Station 2, Boniba said.
Casuyod, meanwhile said that a certain Bebe lent him the motorcycle, that he also lent to his partner, Teruel.
Boniba said Casuyod was relieved from his post yesterday and transferred to the Bacolod Police headquarters, while his case is ongoing.
Casuyod was formerly with Police Station 7 before he was assigned last week, to Station 2.*SGG
