NOT even police offices are safe from thieves.


Members of the Passi City Police Office arrested the suspect who allegedly ransacked the Community Police Assistance Center (COMPAC) detachment at Brgy. Agtabo, Passi City, Iloilo.


PO3 Niel Amador said Ricky Barrios is accused of carting away an Armalite rifle, an AK-47 rifle and a Carbine rifle from the detachment Monday.


Amador said no one was left to watch after the detachment because police officer Duncan Palomado, who is assigned to the station, went home.


Barrios brought his loot to the house of Ronnel Fuentes at Brgy. Sablugon, Passi City but the latter informed the police about the high powered firearms in his house.



In Iloilo City, Reynaldo Gallardo of Brgy. Don Esteban, Lapuz district complained with the Iloilo City proper police station that his motorcycle impounded in the Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO) was missing.


Gallardo said the Traffic Management and Engineering Unit impounded his motorcycle May 11 for driving sans a safety helmet and driver’s license.


But Gallardo was surprised when he found out yesterday that his motorcycle was nowhere to be found. (FAA)
