AN alleged officer of the Bureau of Customs (BoC) in Cagayan de Oro (CDO) Port who was killed in a reported shootout with a broker in Cagayan de Oro City was not a BoC employee, according to an official.
In a report to Customs Commissioner Isidro Lapeña, BoC-CDO intelligence chief Alvin Enciso said on Sunday that a verification check on the identity of Roy Etulle Ancajas, 45, showed that the victim was not connected to Customs.
On November 11, it was reported that Ancajas, a resident of No. 122C Cabantan Street, Mabolo, Cebu City, was killed in a shootout with alleged Customs broker Joed Pasasadaba in Barangay Macasandig.
“Based on our investigation, we discovered that Ancajas is not a member of the Customs Police nor is he an employee of the bureau. There is no record of a BOC employee bearing the name Roy Ancajas,” said Enciso.
The Customs Police ID recovered from the crime scene was also fake.
BoC-CDO district collector Jamail Marohomsalic has ordered an investigation on how Ancajas was able to obtain a Customs Police ID and for what purpose. WILLIAM B. DEPASUPIL
