The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) disarmed and took two of its men into custody on charges that they arrested a call center agent on trumped-up drug charges, roughed him up and extorted P15,000 for his release.

PO1s George Verbo Jr. and Thomas Jansen Tulio were turned over to the QCPD headquarters Wednesday night by their superior, Fairview station commander Supt. Virgilio Fabian.

Their alleged cohort in the extortion, PO1 Benjie Tan, remained at large.

This was after the 31-year-old call center agent and his 19-year-old live-in partner filed a complaint against four plainclothesmen who allegedly arrested the man for alleged drug pushing Tuesday morning on Buick Street, Barangay South Fairview.

The lawmen, who were still unidentified when the complaint was filed, allegedly demanded P20,000 from the call center agent, but his partner was able to come up with only P15,000.

SPO1 Gregorio Maramag, the case investigator, said Verbo, Tulio and Tan were positively identified by the couple when they were shown photos and following a verification with the Fairview station.

QCPD director Senior Supt. Richard Albano said he had ordered Tulio and Verbo disarmed.

“I am warning policemen who are thinking of doing unlawful acts like this to get out of the force. We have no place for them,” the official said.

Also on Wednesday, the QCPD’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit arrested the two alleged drug informants who had tagged the call center agent as a drug pusher and caused his arrest.

A team led by Insp. Elmer Monsalve caught up with Jerry Sora, 43, of Barangay Commonwealth, and Domingo Mendaro, 42 of Barangay Fairview around 7:30 p.m.

Records showed that Verbo entered the police service in 2003, while Tan and Tulio joined the force in 2010.

    dapat talaga may permanenteng undercover at independent na NBI task force na huma-hunting sa mga abusadong pulis. tuwing makahuli sila, bigyan sila ng bonus at pag nakarami, promotion.

    tignan ko lang kung may matira pang abusado.

    yan ang tinatawag na pro-active approach na ginagawa sa ibang bansa. kaya takot gumawa ng kalokohan mga pulis doon.

      Papano naman kung ang “permanenteng undercover” na NBI ang gumawa ng katiwalian dahil sa pwesto nya? Bantay-salakay ika nga?

    lahat na illegal ay ganagawang legal ng ating kapulisan dahil pakiramdam nila sila ang hari. . . mga nakumpiskang droga pag napasakamay ng pulis ay talamak na naibebenta,., illegal na sugal ay di magalaw dahil  protektado, malakas ang loob mang rape kasi parak, malayang iparada ang saykyan sa masikip na kalye akala mo karugtong ng kanilang bakuran, . sarap mag pulis walang bawal. . . kaya para everybody hapi. . ay magpulis na tayong lahat.

  • regie

    base sa comprehensive dangerous act of 2002 eh capital offense ang planting of “drug” evidence so pag file ng kaso dito at me probable cause eh walang bail ang mga animal na mga ito,,,,kayong couple na victim wag papaareglo…anyway dahil crime against the public ito eh pwede ba sec. de lima ipursue niyo ito para maalis ang mga ganitong klaseng pulis sa serbisyo kahit na umatras ang mga biktima?

    Bagong recruit lang nuong 2010 pero marunong ng mangotong, ano ba yan?  Dapat tanggal agad sila para leksion sa mga pulis na may balak gumaya.

    • batangsulpok

      Siguro nakapasok na Pulis yan dahil nagbayad kaya nangongotong na,sabagay, lahat naman sila ay kotong kaagad ang natutunan pagpasok sa PNP kaya wala na yatang matino sa kanila, mga mukhang pera.

    These scalawags in uniform can still be considered neophytes in the service and yet has become so corrupt and criminal-minded. The should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Also, to the officials of the police, if you truly wanted to cleanse your ranks, do it sincerely without fanfare and or media blitz.  If you sack and charge erring subordinates  sincerely and fast enough, it really will serve as deterrent to same-minded cops and you will have lesser number of erring cops to handle in the future.

    We should be unforgiving with those who, instead of upholding their sworn duty to serve and protect, dishonor the badge that represents the whole law enforcement institution.
