11 cops in Carl slay, robbery face ax


MANILA, Philippines — The Internal Affairs Service (IAS) of the Philippine National Police has recommended the dismissal from the service of 11 Caloocan City policemen tagged in the killing of Carl Angelo Arnaiz and the robbery at the house of a businesswoman that was caught on closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera.

Two of the lawmen – Police Officers 1 Jeffrey Perez and Ricky Arquilita – allegedly killed Arnaiz in a shootout after he allegedly robbed taxi driver Tomas Bagcal along C-3 Road on Aug. 18.

The IAS recommended that Perez and Arquilita’s superior, Maypajo police precinct commander Chief Inspector Fortunato Ecle, be demoted to a lower rank of senior inspector for grave neglect of duty.

IAS inspector general Alfegar Triambulo said nine other police officers who raided the house of 51-year-old Gina Erobas during a supposed anti-drug operation are facing dismissal from the police service.

CCTV footage showed the policemen ransacking the house of Erobas with the help of a minor on Sept. 7.


“They were found liable for grave misconduct and conduct unbecoming of police officers,” Triambulo said.
He said Erobas originally tagged 13 policemen in the robbery. But four of them were cleared of the charges after they proved that they were not present during the incident.

Tala police precinct commander Chief Inspector Timothy Aniway Jr. was suspended for 50 days for grave neglect of duty, according to Triambulo.

“Although Aniway was not directly involved in the illegal raid, he was included in the case for command responsibility,” the IAS chief said.

In her complaint, Erobas said the police officers broke into her house and accused her of hiding shabu.

Erobas said she lost at least P26,000 worth of cash and valuables during the break-in.
