Former Cop Involved In Kidnapping BIR Officials Arrested
KIDNAPPING BIR OFFICIALS – A former policeman who was involved in the kidnapping of Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) officials was arrested.
The arrest of the ex-cop, identified as Police Officer 3 Allan Encina Formilleza, occurred at around 11 AM on Monday, June 15, in Las Palmas Subdivision, Barangay Caypombo, Sta. Maria, Bulacan.
Forilleza was formerly assigned at the Quezon City Police District. He, however, went AWOL or absence without official leave in 2019.
Major Rannie Lumactod, spokesperson of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Anti-Kidnapping Group (AKG) spokesperson, said that law enforcers serve three arrest warrants on Formilleza .
This was issued by the Regional Trial Court National Capital Judicial Region for charges of murder, theft and estafa.
“Nag-conduct kami ng surveillance para mahuli itong mga grupo na ito at nakakuha nga kami na may warrant of arrest pala sya so ‘yun ang ginamit para mahuli sya,”
“Kasi ang karamihan sa mga grupo ng kidnapper may mga kanya kanyang warrant… kaya nga kahit na ang kaso nila ay murder, or homicide basta sila ay naka-link sa grupo ng kidnapper kukuhain po yan ng ating kapulisan sa anti-kidnapping group,”
Based on the report, Formilleza is a member of the “gapos gang”, which runs their operations in the National Capital Region and Central Luzon. They primarily target wealthy BIR officials.
“Hindi ito ordinaryong grupo sapagkat karamihan sa mga ito ay dating pulis,”
