Two women wanted by the law were arrested during a police operation in Barangay Tumaga yesterday morning.

City Police Office’s Spokesperson Sr. Insp. Helen Galvez identified those arrested as Carla Jessica Fonollera, 31, married and Teresita Calimpong , 55, married both of Mercury Drive, Tumaga.

Galvez said that the two were arrested by men of the Sta. Maria Police Station led by SPO4 Ruben Najirul under Supt. Haywien Salvado, around 9:30 a.m.

The two were nabbed on the strength of a warrant for estafa thru falsification of public documents as defined and penalized under article 315 in relation to article 171and article 48 with a case number 32270.

The warrant was issued by Judge Gregorio V. Dela Peña of the Regional Trial Court Branch 12 on March 11, 2016.

The two were taken to the Sta. Maria Police Station pending their turnover to the court.

On December 2014, agents of the National Bureau of Investigation arrested Paul Deejay Notarion, a desktop publishing artist, for manufacturing fake documents like payslips and identification cards for teachers during a raid in Tetuan Tuesday afternoon.

Carmen Linda Aguado, manager of AC&C lending ventures corporation, had filed a complaint with the NBI regional office after discovering documents like payslips and identification cards submitted by 34 public school teachers in applying for salary loan were fake.

In an interview, Aguado said it was Carla Fonollera, a teacher of Tumaga Elementary School, who endorsed the 34 teachers to apply for loan with AC&C.

At the same time, Fonollera stood as co-maker in the transaction.

However Aguado said that after the company approved their loan, the management observed that some of the teachers could not pay their obligations on time.

A certain Sherry who introduced herself as a teacher and also a friend of Fonollera applied for a loan but was not granted after the management noticed some discrepancy  in her requirements.

Later on Sherry went to the lending office and told Aguado that she is not a teacher.

She also admitted that out of 34 teachers who were granted salary loan, only 28 were real teachers and six were unemployed person

Sherry added that all the payslips and the six identification cards of the fake teachers were fake as well.

Moreover, Sherry said it was Notarion, a friend of Fonollera who manufactured the fake payslips and identification cards.

The purpose of falsifying fake payslips is to show to the lending company that they have enough take-home pay for the firm to approve their loan application.

Then the management of the lending firm went to the house of Notarion and took some video while he was manufacturing fake documents. — Dan Toribio
