BAGUIO CITY -- Officials and personnel of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group Cordillera recently confirmed in their reports of the increasing number of cases of illegal gambling, estafa, sexual assault and rape, even while agents focus on service of warrants of arrest of wanted persons and their arrest.
     Col. Leon P. Talleo, CIDG-Cordillera Regional Chief expressed his appreciation to the agency’s personnel who helped in the successful arrest of the wanted persons, further saying that the community had done its part in the campaign of the Philippine National Police to track down law violators.
    Based on reports for the month of October as submitted by CIDG field agents stationed in Baguio and the six provinces of the Cordillera Region that were furnished this paper, there were at least seven separate WoA for persons involved in sexual assault and rape cases that took place in Baguio City; Tuba, Benguet; and Bangued, Abra.
    Under the crime of estafa, at least two cases were filed by CIDG Baguio CFU and CIDG Kalinga PFU, respectively, while the top most wanted person (TMWP) on the provincial level of CIDG Baguio was nabbed in Valenzuela City, MM by virtue of warrant of arrest issued by Baguio RTC Branch 5 for estafa.
    In the CIDG Cordillera accomplishment report for October, at least one criminal case for large scale illegal recruitment and estafa was filed before the Office of the City Prosecutor of Baguio City by operatives of the Baguio CFU.
    The same CIDG Baguio CFU reported the arrest of another TMWP on the provincial level by virtue of a WoA issued by Baguio RTC Branch 3 for homicide and frustrated homicide.
    Based on the accomplishment reports, the CIDG Cordillera served 32 arrest warrants for October.
    The warrants were issued by RTC branches on different dates in the past against individuals involved in assorted crimes, apart from those served by other law enforcement agencies under the PNP and the National Bureau of Investigation.
    All persons named in the different arrest warrants were arrested by CIDG field units in the region.
    These were in addition to 14 arrests made during police operations over several illegal gambling activities.
In their reports, the CIDG field units described illegal gambling operations as the collection of bets by persons who failed to present pertinent documents issued by the PCSO that authorized them to collect money bets for small town lottery (STL) games.
     The CIDG reports indicated the presence of illegal gambling activities called “bookies” that pretended to be operating under the STL, even while the Pines Estate Gaming Corp. certified that the arrested persons were not registered as bet collectors on their behalf.
     The arrests of illegal bet collectors by the CIDG Benguet PFU under Capt. Oscar S. Dalmacio were the result of police operations in Sablan, Tuba, Tublay and La Trinidad, particularly at Camp Dangwa, Barangay Alapang and in the vicinities of the BAPTC and the Vegetable Trading Post.
     Police operations and arrests against STL “bookies” were also conducted in the towns of Lamut, Alfonso Lista and Lagawe by the CIDG Ifugao PFU under PLt. Eddie P. Palisoc; and in Kalinga by the concerned CIDG field unit.
