Beware to all drivers evading inspection at a police checkpoint.

A 25-year old man who tried to escape from being inspected at a police checkpoint in Boalan at dawn yesterday was arrested for gun possession by authorities.

Police identified the suspect as Rendon Ibañez y Tuazon, single and a resident of Barangay Tetuan.

A police report disclosed that Divisoria Police Station personnel were conducting a checkpoint along the Boalan portion of Lobregat Highway when Ibañez passed by aboard his motorcycle.

When Ibañez spotted the policemen, he tried to evade the checkpoint by making a U-turn but he was blocked by other policemen.

Authorities asked for the suspect’s driver’s license but the latter suddenly kicked one of the lawmen and tried to run away.

After a short chase, Ibañez was cornered and arrested.

Lawmen confiscated a .45 caliber gun with two loaded magazines from Ibañez.

He was later detained at the Divisoria Police Station pending the filing of charges in court.  (Dan Toribio)
