Two police officers were disarmed on Thursday by Manila Police District commander Chief Supt. Rolando Asuncion. Police Officer 3 Ranilo dela Vital and PO1 Joel Morales, both assigned to Police Station 5 in Ermita district, allegedly took away the P3,000 cash of a certain Alex Llamas, 44. Llamas said he had been asked by other police officers to buy food for police trainees last Monday. He added that he showed the suspects a text message from Inspector Danilo Buyao, head of District Intelligence Division, directing him to prepare the food for the trainees but to no avail. The two police officers are facing charges for robbery and unlawful arrest before the Manila Prosecutor’s Office.
