EASTERN VISAYAS – Authorities of Oplan Maharlika and Allen Municipal Police Station intercepted an alleged carnapped vehicle at a checkpoint in Maharlika Highway, Brgy. Jubasan, Allen, Northern Samar on March 28, 2023. The search for possible possession of contrabands led to the discovery of an estimated P7M worth of shabu.

The vehicle, a Toyota Vios sedan with metallic orange color and bearing plate number CAI 1585, was allegedly carnapped and registered to Edwin S Hipolito of Tarlac City. 

Rolando C. Cura reported to Capaz Municipal Police Station that his owned Toyota Vios with the same description as the intercepted vehicle was rented by Nashiba Mangorangka Dimacaling of Balanga City, Bataan, during the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) to be used within Manila area only. However, the said vehicle was not returned on the scheduled date on March 28, 2023.

Upon tracking the vehicle through the Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking device installed, authorities found it at Dapdap Port in Brgy. Jubasan, Allen, Northern Samar. The offenders, identified as Jabbar Angni Azis, Aminollah Moti H. Mohammad, and Amenodeh Agul Mamao, were immediately arrested and duly documented using an alternative recording device by the arresting officers.

During the search, ten packs of white crystalline substance suspected to be shabu were seized from a brown leather sling bag placed inside a transparent plastic sachet. The estimated value of the seized shabu is around P7M.

Oplan Maharlika, conceptualized by PBGEN Rommel Francisco D. Marbil, Regional Director of PRO 8, aims to secure the Maharlika Highway from Allen, Northern Samar, to San Ricardo, Southern Leyte. Marbil expressed happiness that Oplan Maharlika is serving its purpose in preventing crimes and other illegal activities, especially at places of a conveyance coming in and out of Eastern Visayas.

Documentation, inventory, and marking of recovered drug items were done at the place of the incident. The offenders now face charges for violating Republic Act No. 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 and for carnapping.

The seized illegal drugs will be turned over to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) for proper disposition. The PDEA continues to work with the Philippine National Police (PNP) and other law enforcement agencies in their fight against illegal drugs. —iTacloban (Source: PRO-8)
