Man nabbed at QC Hall for impersonating as cop

/ 04:06 PM February 28, 2013

MANILA, Philippines—A man was arrested at the Quezon City Hall Thursday morning for allegedly impersonating as a police officer.

Daniel Caballero was busted when an alert policeman at the city hall noticed that his uniform had two different ranks.

Superintendent Marcelino Pedrozo Jr. of the Kamuning police station said Caballero, 34, was arrested at the Hall of Justice in Barangay (village) Central in Quezon City around 9:15 a.m.


Pedrozo said Senior Police Officer 1 Conrad Lim of Kamuning police was at the city hall for a court hearing when he noticed Caballero’s uniform had conflicting ranks–a police inspector on the shoulder board and a Senior Police Office 1 on the shoulder patch.

Pedrozo said Caballero failed to produce proper documents to support his claim that he is a police officer.

Police Officer 1 James Tawan, also from the same station, said investigators have yet to determine Caballero’s motive, but quoted the suspect as saying that he just wanted to talk to Quezon City Mayor Herbert “Bistek” Bautista.

Among the recovered items from Caballero were two driver’s licenses that had different names.

Caballero was placed under police custody for further investigation.
