QC police chief claims Quezon City is no ‘carnap city’

/ 03:27 PM August 15, 2011

MANILA, Philippines-Quezon city cannot be tagged a ‘carnap city’, Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director Chief Superintendent George Regis said on Monday.

“We cannot continue to let our constituents in Quezon city think that it is a carnap city,” Regis argued.


Regis said the number of carnapping incidents in a city should not be the only basis, but the number of population and the number of vehicles bought within a period of time.

Regis said that by next week, he will present data at Camp Crame that will prove that Quezon City is not a ‘carnap city.’


Quezon city has the most number of carjacking incidents in the National Capital region (NCR), accounting for 26% of the entire number of cases, followed by Manila with 21% and Makati with 7%, revealed Highway Patrol Group (HPG) director Chief Superintendent Leonardo Espina.

NCR remains the main source of stolen vehicles in the country, accounting for 84% of the total number of carnapping cases nationwide, added Espina.

Regions 4A and 3 run second and third, he said.
