Kaytikling Brgy. Dolores, Taytay, Rizal on June 15, 2022 at around 11:27 AM.
“I commend our operating troops for this significant accomplishment as part of our relentless efforts to cleanse the ranks of the PNP whether active or former members, for as long as they used to be known members of the PNP, as part of the Internal Cleansing Program of the PNP. The arrest of PSSg Luis M Jomok III is a testament to the IMEG’s commitment in the PNP’s thrust to gain public trust and confidence. This former police officer who has a standing warrant of arrest since September 2021 has continued his illegal activities which prompted the family of the victim to seek our help to effect arrest against the suspect,” PBGEN NACION said.
In a report submitted to PLTGEN VICENTE D DANAO JR, PNP Officer-in-Charge, the joint elements of Counter-Intelligence Division-IMEG led by PMAJ CHRISTIAN C BURGOS under the direct supervision of PLTCOL LEO M CANUEL against the ex-PNP member by virtue of Warrant of arrest for the crime of Homicide under CC No. R-PSY-08-07174-CR issued by Hon. Wilhelmina B Jorge-Wagan Presiding Judge of Branch CXI (111) Regional Trial Court National Capital Region-JR, Pasay City.
“As I have always emphasized, there is no room for misconduct and breach of discipline in the PNP, thus we will ensure that cops with criminal cases are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because criminals have no place in the police service,” PLTGEN VICENTE D DANAO JR said in a press statement
As a backgrounder, the suspect, a former PNP personnel who was demoted thrice and later dismissed from the service is the subject of Intelligence Packet “Mokong” who was involved in a shooting incident on August 7, 2008 in Pasay City that resulted to the death of Billy Lozada and has a standing warrant of arrest issued on September 2021. Despite the fact that nine months have passed, the suspect continues to enjoy his freedom and indulged in the unlawful sale of nearly expired Boritos.
“On June 3, 2022, Counter-Intelligence Division received information that the subject is sighted in Brgy Dolores Taytay Rizal and on June 4, 2022, operatives of Counter-Intelligence Division immediately went to Brgy Dolores Taytay Rizal to verify the veracity of information. As a result, the subject was indeed sighted at his store of the said place based on the information from his neighbors,” Director, IMEG added.
“During his arrest, PSSg Luis M Jomok III even offered 2 million pesos as bribe money to the arresting personnel in exchange for not affecting the arrest. Hence, we will be filing a complaint against the suspect for violating Art 212. Corruption of Public Officials of the Revised Penal Code for his attempt to bribe our personnel.” PBGEN NACION, said.
The suspect was appraised of his constitutional rights who likewise opted to remain silent and subsequently brought to IMEG-Headquarters, Camp Crame, Quezon City for documentation and processing prior return of the Warrant of Arrest from the court of origin.
