The Highway Patrol Group-9 has forwarded to the City Prosecutor’s Office a criminal case against a certain  Boy Janaed for violation of Republic Act No. 10591 otherwise known as the Compresive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act for  illegal possession of firearms .

The case has been registered under Docket No. IX- 06 INV-15E-00012.

Case investigator Sr. Insp. Mervin Claret, in a report to HPG-9 Chief Sr. Supt. Severino B. Agustin, said that HPG-9 operatives along with men of the Zamboanga City Public Safety Company led by Supt. Ariel T. Huesca mounted an anti -carnapping operation along Guiwan Highway where a white Ford Everest driven by Janaed was flagged dow for using an unauthorized improvised plate number and bearing no Land Transportation Office current sticker.

When the driver was asked about his motorvehicle registration, he presented spurious documents. When it was verified at the Vehicle Management Information System (VISM), the Ford Everest was registered in Manila and encumbered to the Union Bank. Janaed did not also present a Chattel Mortgage release from the Union Bank.

The HPG-9 operatives brought the vehicle to Camp batalla for documentation-inventory and macro- etching examination.

Janaed was asked by the HPG-9 men if he has some personal things to get from the vehicle because it will be impounded. He answered yes and told the officers that he has a 45 caliver pistol thereat. He presented an expired gun license and expired permit to carry gun. The expiration date of his gun was June 26,2013. He was also advised by the lawmen that the Philippine National Police was granting an amnesty to expired gun holders last 2013 under “Oplan Katok”.  He was also informed of his violations.

Apparently, Janaed ignored the advice prompting the HPG-9 to file the case against him. — Allen Abastillas
