ARMED vigilantes will not be tolerated even if the Iloilo Provincial Police Office (IPPO) has its hands full of robbery cases and other incidents.
Senior Supt. Ricardo dela Paz, IPPO director, made this statement to clarify his earlier pronouncements over radio stations that he is encouraging vigilantes to run after criminals.
Dela Paz said what he meant was a civilian volunteer group that will help the police through information and tips on the whereabouts of criminals.
“In everything we do, the rule of law must be followed. Armed vigilantes are out of the question because their existence and mode of operation are against the legal system,” dela Paz said.
The IPPO chief said they want to stress the role of the public in crime fighting by way of reporting presence of suspicious individuals and untoward incidents in their communities.
“We meant vigilance, not vigilantes,” he added.
Meanwhile, the IPPO yesterday said nine suspected robbers were arrested by various municipal police stations in the past two weeks.
The suspects were presented the suspects in a press conference Thursday at the office of Governor Niel Tupas Sr. in the provincial capitol.
The arrested persons were:
– Jonathan Paniza (robbery) arrested in Cabatuan, Iloilo August 6;
– Democrito Miro (robbery in band) arrested in New Lucena, Iloilo August 7;
– Jonnel Mallo (illegal possession of firearms, highway robbery, and robbery) arrested in New Lucena August 7;
– Ivan Apruevo (highway robbery in band and illegal possession of firearms) arrested in Lambunao, Iloilo;
– Ludovico Consumo Jr. (robbery) arrested on August 14;
– Jerry dela Cruz (robbery) arrested in Janiuay, Iloilo August 4;
– Darry Bravo (robbery) arrested in Cabatuan August 14;
– Bernie Manajero and Victorio Luis.
Dela Paz said the arrests were part of their intensified campaigns against criminality following the spate of robberies victimizing lending collectors in the province.
