The said baggage was not claimed until the establishment closed that day. The following day, June 27, 2020 at around 2:00PM, an unidentified male person appeared and tried to claim the baggage but he failed to present the issued baggage counter claim stub.

Due to the failure of the depositor to claim the baggage, the management decided to check the content thereof. Found inside the baggage were sealed plastic sachets containing white crystalline substance suspected to be shabu wrapped in two (2) Eco Bags colored black and orange.

Meanwhile, on June 28, 2020, at about 10:00 AM, the police sub-station received a telephone call from MRB Security Agency Manager about the discovered suspected illegal drugs left in the baggage counter of Uni-Mec Supermarket.

Consequently, a team was formed to conduct surveillance and monitoring operation within the vicinity of the Supermarket for possible apprehension of the owner/claimant of the baggage. However, no person appeared to claim the same until the closing time of the establishment.

Hence, the baggage containing the said suspected illegal drugs were turned-over to Sub-Station 9 office by JESSIEBELL ARTANA y MARAVILLA, 36 years old, with live-in partner, lady guard of MRB Security Agency and a resident of No. 73 Sitio Sto. Nino, San Martin de Porres, Paranaque City together with other items thus:

a. One (1) Uni-Mec Baggage Counter Stub bearing number B18;

b. two (2) pieces of sealed transparent plastic sachets containing white crystalline substance suspected to be shabu weighing more or less 200.69 grams with DDB value amounting to more or less Php1,304,485.00 wrapped in two (2) Eco Bags colored black and orange.

Thereafter, the items marked as “JAM-1” and “JAM-2” with date and signature by the reporter was brought to the Southern Police District Crime Laboratory (SPDCL) office for confirmatory examination.

“I commend the immediate response of the elements of the Makati City Police Station which led to the recovery of more than 1.3 Million pesos worth of suspected illegal drugs left in the baggage counter of a grocery store in Makati. Apparently, this is another scheme taken by illegal drug dealers to forestall actions taken by different law enforcement agencies against them. Hence, I encourage our counterparts down to the line of security officers manning different establishments in the Metro to be vigilant and immediately report similar suspicious events in their AOR to the nearest police station,” said PMGEN SINAS.

Jose Abad Santos Police Station Jail Facility To Undergo Major Renovation

The National Capital Region Police Chief PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS commended the initiative of the Manila Police District JAS-PS7 Police Station, Abad Santos Ave., Tondo, Manila to improve the condition of their custodial facility through a major renovation.

According to the initial report, the project stemmed from the directive of the NCRPO Chief PMGEN SINAS, to ensure improved condition of the custodial facilities in the Metro.

Currently, the custodial facility of MPD PS7 has the capacity to accommodate 50 persons only. However, as of the moment, it is home to 216 persons under police custody.

Regional Internal Affairs Service: Intensified Inspection Of Personnel Amid Community Quarantine

The National Capital Region Police Office under the leadership of PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS received the report from the Internal Affairs Service containing the list of NCRPO personnel who were either absent or committed infractions during the implementation of the community quarantine in Metro Manila.

The report was submitted following the instruction of PMGEN SINAS to intensify field inspection in line with the invigorated internal cleansing effort of NCRPO.

Considering the increased number of police officers manning control points and checkpoints and conducting patrol, all district IAS and the Regional IAS initiated an intensified surprise inspection procedure to ensure that all operational and administrative guidelines were strictly adhered to by police officers from the higher headquaters down to the smallest precinct.

According to the report, from March 15, 2020 to May 15, 2020, a total of 126 absences and 29 infractions were recorded while the Metro is still under the Enhanced Community Quarantine.

Thereafter, when the community quarantine was downgraded to Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine, the absences reported went down from 126 to 40 cases while the occurrence of infractions were lowered from 29 to a mere 2 cases from May 16, 2020 to May 31, 2020.

The two cases of infractions were both reported by RIAS NCR involving sporting of long beard/mustache and insertion of firearms inside the pocket trousers which violates the prescribed ‘Tamang Bihis’ guidelines for police officers.

Finally, under the General Community Quarantine, the absences noted increased from 40 to 44. The report further disclosed an increase in the number of infractions noted from 2 to 146.

The number of infractions and absences reflects a minimal number of violators among the NCRPO rank considering its current total population of more than 25, 605.

Nonetheless, the Chief NCRPO guaranteed zero-tolerance and due imposition of penalties once their case will be decided in accordance with due process.

The Regional Director, NCRPO communicated his appreciation and commended the personnel of the different District and Regional IAS for their unwavering implementation of laws, orders and other similarly related issuances geared to ensure unity in movement, discipline and appearance among the NCRPO Ranks.

The Internal Affairs Service of the Philippine National Police was created pursuant to Republic Act 8551 otherwise known as “The PNP Reform and Reorganization Act of 1998”. It is tasked to instill police discipline, enhance the delivery of police service and dispense justice.

Verily, the RIAS and the district IAS play important roles in the plight of NCRPO to cleanse its rank from erring members and scalawags who taint the good image of the organization and ruin the trust and confidence of the people of the Metro to their police.

“Apparently, the challenges faced by the RIAS and district IAS in the performance of their mandate was greatly increased by the current health crisis. Yet, despite the hurdles, the above records reflect their undeviating dedication to the performance of their function,” PMGEN SINAS said.
