Members of the anti-scalawag unit of the Philippine National Police (PNP) have arrested a dismissed police officer wanted for illegal drugs cases in Quezon City.
In a statement Thursday, Brig. Gen. Warren De Leon, chief of the Integrity Monitoring and Enforcement Group (IMEG), identified the suspect as Ex-SSgt. National Capital Region Field Unit and other PNP Units arrested Harold Campos during an operation in Barangay Roxas District, Quezon City, on Tuesday evening.
He said the arrest of the suspect because of the information provided by the community was Campos’ presence in the area.
The suspect has a standing arrest warrant issued by the Regional Trial Court, National Capital Judicial Region, Branch 84, Quezon City ?, for violation of the dangerous drug act of 1972 (RA 6425) and violation of Sec. 8 article II in relation to section 2 (E-I) article I of RA 6425 as amended by RA 7659 with bail recommended amounting to PHP60,000.
According to De Leon that Campos was known in their locality for his involvement in various illegal activities such as drugs and with complaints also for violations of local ordinances. The charges were also the reason for his dismissal from the PNP service.
“(The) IMEG remains keen on ensuring that active or former PNP members, who violated any laws must be apprehended. This is how we intend to serve the public, that is, without fear or favor, and in line with our CPNP’s peace and security framework MKK=K Malasakit, Kaayusan, Kapayapaan tungo sa Kaunlaran,” De Leon said.
“This arrest is also a manifestation that with the help of the community and other PNP units working together we can truly achieve lasting peace and security. Tulong-tulong tayo (Let's help each other),” he added.
