A 22-year old laborer from San Isidro Village, Virac faces a carnapping charge after he, along with two others who eluded arrest, was foiled by a police patrol from stealing a motorcycle from the Land Transportation Office’s impounding area.

According to the report from the office of Virac PNP officer-in-charge Chief Inspector Danilo Tenerife, a concerned citizen informed PO3 Nestor Venus regarding three unidentified men pushing a motorcycle.

PCI Tenerife immediately sent a patrol team led by SPO3 Erwin Molina to the area near the Oceanview Subdivision where they spotted the suspects at 1:55 A.M. of Sept. 27, 2018.

Two of the suspects scampered away when they saw the police car approaching, leaving laborer Oliver Orence Mendoza, a resident of the relocation site in the same barangay, with the red and black Euro motorcycle. The team arrested Mendoza after it was noticed that the motorcycle’s chain was already rusted, indicating that it had not been used for a long time.

The suspect identified his companions as Samuel Eusebio, 20, and Raymart Brando, 20, also residents of the relocation site. Coordination with the LTO Virac branch office showed that motorcycle was indeed taken from their impounding area.

The police is now preparing documents for the filing of criminal charges with the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office against the suspects for violation of Republic Act No. 10883 or the New Anti-Carnapping Act of 2016.
