Authorities have recovered a suspected carnapped  vehicle during anti-carnapping and anti-colorum operations along the Maria Clara Lobregat Highway (MCLL) late last week.

Sr. Inspector Mervin S. Claret, Highway Patrol Group- 9 Operation Officer, identified the vehicle as a silver Toyota Innova with plate number LZ670.

The unit was flagged down along the Culianan portion of the highway by operatives and personnel from the Highway Patrol Group-9, Land Transportation Office-9 and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board-9.

Upon inspection, the driver of the unit, identified as Ambul Baginda, failed to present documents as proof of ownership.

Baginda, however, was able to present an official receipt.

Personnel who later checked records of the vehicle with the Motor Vehicle Management Information System found out that the unit was placed under hold order alarm.

Based on the records, the vehicle’s owner is Ben Perez of Quirino Avenue in Quezon City.  Perez reported to HPG in Camp Crame that his vehicle was stolen on August 10, 2016.

The car is now impounded at Camp Batalla.  (Allen Abastillas)
