A man in possession of a handgun while having a drinking spree, was arrested by a policeman in Barangay Lunzuran, this city, the other day.
Reports identified the suspect as Roel Luna y Enriquez, 33, a resident of Upper Cabatangan, this city.
Probers said Police Officer 2 Nelson Cabatingan, assigned with the local police and a resident of the same place, arrested the suspect while cocking a defective 9mm Caliber Pistol with serial number 162760.
Police investigation disclosed that prior to the suspect’s arrest, PO2 Cabatingan arrived at his residence in Lunzuran and saw the suspect together with his relative having a drinking spree near his house.
Later, the policeman heard a sound of firearm being cocked by unidentified person that prompted him to hold his pistol and get out of his house to check where the sound came from.
When outside, he saw the suspect holding the handgun prompting Cabatangan to point his gun at the suspect and disarm him.
The suspect was brought to Divisoria Police Station for proper investigation and detention while the handgun was turned over to the investigator for safekeeping.
Appropriate case is being readied by the police against him in court.
