The Highway Patrol Team of Zamboanga del Sur based in Camp Abelon Pagadian City has filed a criminal case against  a person for violation of the Anti- Fencing Law.

Inspector Joseph  Fontanilla Jr., ZDSPHPT chief, in a report to HPG-9 Chief Sr. Supt. Severino B. Agustin, said that while they were conducting an anti-carnapping operation along JP Rizal Avenue in Pagadian City, they spotted a light beige Toyota Hi Lux with plate number NIG 787.

After the vehicle was flagged down, the driver was found to have been using an unauthorized improvised plate number without an authority from the Land Transportation Office-9.  Even though he is already in the age of majority, the driver was using an expired student permit to drive which is  a violation of the Traffic Code of the Philippines.

The motorvehicle chassis and engine number of the  Toyota pick-up  was also checked with the Vehicle Information Management System ( VISM ) where it was discovered to be under a hold order under alarm with number 20141120.  The registered owner of the pickup is  A. B Maranget of  Caloocan City. The name of the driver was withheld  pending the filing of a criminal case against.

The HPG operatives behind the successful recovery of the motorvehicle are SPOI Bobby Solis, SPOI Gether P. Abo-Abo, PO3 Tanoan M. Sangcopan, PO3 Apolinario  P. Vilvestre Jr., PO1 Jerix Culanculan and men of  the Pagadian City Police Station.
