BADOC, Ilocos Norte, July 21, 2020– A vehicular accident yielded the discovery of two elderly quack doctors who illegally entered the province by eluding the control border checkpoint in this town.
P/Captain Joseph Tayaban, the town police chief, said that the quack doctors locally called Albularyo, aged 60 and 71, were arrested after their ride met a vehicular accident in Bacarra town while en route to Bangui in the farther north.
As they failed to present any official travel documents, the two suspects were held by the Bacarra police and later turned them over to the Badoc police station for custody and filing of appropriate charges.
Investigators said the suspects coming from Sinait, Ilocos Sur managed to skip the checkpoint by trekking a secret route at the ongoing mini-dam project in Sinait.
When the duo reached the Badoc territory, a contact person as their assigned driver fetched them.
They were cruising the Bacarra highway towards Bangui as their destination when they met the road accident, the investigators added. (tri-media report)
