LEGAZPI CITY: A young traffic policeman was conferred a merit medal for killing another law enforcer who dared to rob the Luzon Brokerage Company (LBC) branch in broad daylight last month.
Police Officer (PO)1 Milgar Nocos was recognized for his bravery in neutralizing PO2 Ronnie Sandrino, assigned with Pilar Municipal Police Station in Sorsogon.
Police report said that Sandrino was among the four suspects who robbed LBC branch in 2011 at the Old Albay District here and took away P100,000 in cash. Last May, the same suspect riding a motorcycle robbed the same LBC branch and carted away some P34,000 cash only to return alone last June 8 to meet his fate.
Nocos was manning the traffic in the area when alerted by the commotion. He responded but was engaged by Sandrino, who was in civilian attire, to a gun fight that resulted to the latter’s death.
