Alleged rogue police not yet charged, RIDMD says

THE CHIEF of the Regional Investigation and Detective Management Division (RIDMD) clarified that the administrative case of alleged police protector of a drug suspect in Toril has not been filed yet in their office.

Sr. Supt. Joseph Selpulchre, head of the RIDMD which is under the Police Regional Office-XI, said in a telephone interview yesterday that PO1 Luis Pantig Gabrinao of Toril Police Precinct is not yet administratively charged.

He said they are still waiting for the case folder from the Toril Police Precinct and the Davao City Police Office before they can conduct their own evaluation, “so we could recommend for an administrative case and eventually charged him.”

Based on the log book of the City Prosecution Office, Gabrinao is not also charged for criminal offense as of yesterday morning.

According to the reports, Gabrinao have tipped off a drug pusher who in turn managed to evade the drug buy bust on Nov. 17.

Sr. Supt. Vicente D. Danao Jr., director of Davao City Police Office (DCPO), earlier said they have been receiving reports from Isumbong Kang CD Hotline about his alleged involvement in illegal activities.

Gabrinao is now under restrictive custody of the DCPO’s Investigation and Detection Management Branch.
