Drunken captain faces dismissal

February 16, 2020

A DRUNKEN police captain has gotten the ire of the Philippine National Police leadership headed by General Archie Francisco F. Gamboa after he figured in a rowdy act and caused trouble using his gun inside a resto-bar in Cagayan de Oro City early morning last Valentine’s Day.

Captain Calvin Placer Nario Jr., a 35-year-old resident of Rosewood, Butuan City, Agusan del Norte who was found to be undergoing schooling at the Regional Training Center 10 in Patag, Cagayan de Oro City is now facing a string of criminal and administrative charges which would merit his dismissal from the police force once found guilty.

The policeman’s offensive behavior came in the wake of the ongoing Intensified Internal Cleansing Strategy ordered by Gen. Gamboa as part of their effort to regain the trust and confidence of the citizenry.

Police Regional Office 10 director, Brigadier Gen. Rolando B. Anduyan, said that an investigation conducted by the local police showed that the accused police officer committed the grave misconduct and conduct unbecoming of an officer while inside the Jakkos Grill along Regatta Boulevard in Upper Carmen, Cagayan de Oro City around 4 a.m. last Friday.

Anduyan said that members of the Carmen Police Station 4 under Major Jelesis Teves who responded to the call for assistance discovered that the suspect fled on board his Mitsubishi Montero Sport with plate no. B5A 496 after harassing customers of the bar.

The police officer was intercepted near the RTC 10 headquarters and was immediately disarmed and locked up at the local police jail, said the official. Anduyan said he has ordered Cagayan de Oro City police director, Colonel Henry Dampal to throw the book on the abusive cop.
