MANGALDAN – The officer-in-charge of the Land Transportation Office (LTO)-Lingayen said the two suspected thieves who took his mountain bike have been sued by the local police.
Jun Fabia said his blue bike was stolen by Wilmar Serraon Abalon alias Tamar, 26 and single, and Ariel Advincula Serote, 31 and single, who bartered it with illegal drug shabu (methamphetamine hydro-chloride) at Sitio Silongan in Brgy. Bonuan Binloc , Dagupan City.
Silongan in Dagupan is notorious as illegal drugs haven which is alleged to be a shabu supplier in Regions 1 and 2, and the Cordillera.
Fabia, a resident of Barangay Palua here, said one of the employees of his wife who is into mutton business told her that the culprits were the peers of his uncle who brought the bike and exchanged it with illegal drug from a Muslim resident of Sitio Silongan.
“Ayaw pa ibigay (bike) noong Muslim nuong pinasok namin kasama ang mga police galing sa Dagupan at Mangaldan,” he said.
He narrated that when one of the elders there learned that he is the chief of the LTO he immediately ordered the peddler to return the bike. “Bahala na kayo sir sa mga tao ko dito na mag exam (driver’s license) sa LTO,” Fabia quoted the leader of the community. Superintendent Policarpio Cayabyab, chief of police here, said his men asked one of the suspects to drive the bike, as a sort of punishment, from Silongan to this town under the blistering sun.
The two suspects who are residents Barangay Salay of this town have been suspected to be responsible for to the strings of robbery of Indian nationals here who are into the lending business. “We are waiting for some of the Indians to come to my office to identify them so we can file more cases against them”. He said Tamar is one of the top suspects under the surveillance of his men.
