A member of a notorious robbery syndicate fell into the hands of police in Taguig City.

The Southern Police District (SPD) identified the suspect as Mark Brylle Garcia alias Macling, 19.

He and two other persons - Arlyn Guese De Leon, 25 and an unnamed 16-year-old boy – were flagged down by patrol cops along Ruhale Street in Barangay Calzada-Tipas at 11:50 pm on Wednesday, September 21 for not wearing helmets.

Garcia did not show a driver’s license or any document that proved he owned the motorcycle.

When the patrolling cops verified with the city police’s anti-carnapping unit, Garcia reportedly stole the motorcycle he was driving.

Police immediately arrested Garcia and the two others and recovered from him the stolen motorcycle.

They also confiscated from him a black sling bag that contained a 9-mm pistol with five live bullets, a hand grenade, a sachet of shabu worth P40,596, and a sachet of marijuana with a street value of P418.

Garcia was a member of the Bobby Arao robbery group that was responsible for hold-up crimes in Taguig, Makati, Pasig, Muntinlupa, and Meycauayan in Bulacan.

Garcia and de Leon would be charged with possession of explosives, illegal possession of firearms, possession of illegal drugs, and carnapping, while the minor would be brought to the social welfare office, the SPD said.
