Policeman Arrested for Gun Ban

PAGUDPUD, Ilocos Norte (Oct. 11) – A young policeman is now in hot water after he allegedly fired a gun indiscriminately in the municipal beach park in Brgy. Saud, of said town.

Inspector Adriano Licuda, chief of police, said that the arrested policeman was identified as PO1 Benjamin Tagaca. He said his policemen immediately responded when they received a call that somebody fired a gun at the said public place.

Tagaca’s counsel, Atty. Ferdinand Agustin defended him saying that his client should be charged with the violation of election gun ban instead of illegal discharge of firearms since based on the report, nobody saw Tagaca fired his gun.
