Parañaque cop headed for new post still scores vs robbers



A police officer who was already packing his things for a new posting had a last-minute score against crime in Parañaque City.

Chief Insp. Ferjen Torred led an intelligence team that shot dead one of the two men who allegedly held up a woman on Naia Avenue before dawn Friday.

In a report reaching city police chief Senior Supt. Billy Beltran, the team caught the two robbery suspects still pointing their gun at their target, Nerissa Corral Geronio, 25, who worked at Air Force 1, a videoke bar in the area.

One of the suspects was killed in a shoot-out, while the other was able to escape. Geronio’s bag was recovered from the slain suspect, who was not immediately identified.

Reached on the phone on Saturday, Torred described the foiled robbery as an “incidental” accomplishment.

“I was actually on my way to get my things from the [Parañaque police] headquarters, when we came across the robbery,” said the officer.

Torred said he received word last month that he was being transferred to Camp Crame in Quezon City to work for a special projects group under the Department of Interior and Local Government.

“I was just lucky to be able to help the Parañaque police before I moved out.”  Jaymee T. Gamil

    Hahaha, ganda naman ng istorya. Masama ang loob at ililipat na sa Crame kaya nag-inom sa Airforce 1, pauwi na ng madaling araw at saka naka tiyempo lang ng riding in tandem na dumali sa isang GRO na suki sa Airforce 1.

    this type of police officer should get promotion on the spot.

    It seems like Parañaque had made a lot of improvement in the training and quality of their personnel after that horrible display and technique in apprehending a group of criminals which resulted in a indiscriminate firefight and death to a number of innocent citizens caught in the crossfire. Keep up the outstanding effort in improving the city’s law enforcement personnel.

    Suki talaga ang mga PNP dyan sa AF1. Mga general pa ang tumatambay dyan. Lagi mo makikita pag Wednesday nakatambay na yan kani-kanilang grupo yan.  Syempre wala bayad yang mga yan.
