CITY OF MALOLOS—Joint elements of the Marilao and Valenzuela City Police apprehended on Wednesday afternoon a suspected carjacker that led to the recovery of several “hot” cars and assorted parts of cannibalized vehicles.
Chief Supt. Raul Petrasanta, regional police director for Central Luzon, identified the suspect as Pablito Gumasing.
A report submitted to Petrasanta said operatives from the two police stations conducted a joint operation against Gumasing in Barangay Lolomboy, Bocaue town. The operation was detected by the suspect and a firefight ensued.
Gumasing tried to evade the pursuing law enforcers by speeding away on a Hyundai Getz, believed to be a carnapped vehicle, but was wounded and eventually arrested. A follow-up police operation on the safehouse of Gumasing in Barangay Batia in the municipality of Bocaue resulted in the recovery of one Ford Focus; one Honda Civic; one Hyundai Getz and assorted parts of cannibalized vehicles.
The ownership of the recovered vehicles is currently being verified by the Regional Highway Patrol Group.
