Five of the seven wanted policemen of Malabon surrendered to high-ranking officials of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Camp Crame, Quezon City, on Friday night. These policemen had been the subject of drastic search operations for conspiring with four others for abduction and extortion.
On Monday, May 22, four Malabon Police Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) members were nabbed for abducting and extorting money from the partner of a convicted carjacker. They were identified as Senior Police Officer 2 (SP02) Ricky Pelicano, Police Officer 2 (PO2) Wilson Sanchez, Police Officer 1(PO1) Joselito Ereneo, and Police Officer 1 (PO1) Frances Camua.
The 11 cops involved got a kilo of shabu from the family members of the victim. The shabu was reportedly handed to the cops at a hotel in Quezon City on May 21.
The cops, according to the victim, created a made-up report saying she was arrested in a “buy-bust operation ” in Letre, Malabon.
Northern Police Director (NPD) Chief Supt. Roberto Fajardo said the wanted cops who surrendered were Police Officer 3 Michael Angelo Solomon; Police Officer 3 Luis Hizon Jr.; Police Officer 2 Michael Huerto; Police Officer 1 Ricky Lamsen; and Police Officer 1 Jovito Roque Jr. They are all Malabon DEU cops.
According to Fajardo, the five surrenderees contacted Police Deputy Dir. Gen. Ramon Apolinario.
“They told Gen. Apolinario that they want to surrender. The five DEU cops of Malabon were fetched by members of the Criminal Investigation Task Force around 9 p.m. at NAIA,” the NPD director told the Manila Bulletin.
Fajardo said the five “scalawag” policemen from Malabon were brought to Camp Crame to face PNP’s high-ranking officials.
“The cops said that they surrendered because they got afraid after President Duterte offered P14 million reward in exchange for their heads— either dead or alive,” he told the Manila Bulletin.
