FOUR former members of Mandaluyong City Mayor’s Action Command (MAC), who were accused of detaining a girl and her boyfriend, reportedly a nephew of an associate justice whom they apprehended while “intimately making love” inside their parked vehicle, were nabbed by the Mandaluyong police recently.
Records obtained by the Journal Group identified the suspects as Renato Malabanan, 41, of 415 Tabayog St., Bgy. Malamig; John Olorcisimo, 44, of Luna St., Bgy. Hagdan Bato Itaas; Maynardo Malabuyoc, 52, of Private Roa, Bgy. Hulo; and Lamberto Vicente, 37, of Hinahon St., Bgy Hulo, all in Mandaluyong City.
The four were nabbed by a team from the Mandaluyong Police Warrant and Subpoena Section, headed by SPO4 Jose Drexell Molina, and his men SPO4 Romeo Rico and PO2 Edward Pasco in separate operations on Maysilo Circle and Bgy. Barangka Drive, recently.
The arrest of the former MAC members were based on the warrant for serious illegal detention issued by Judge Estaban Tacla Jr., of the Mandaluyong Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 208.
The four members of the MAC were conducting patrol when they apprehended the lovers allegedly having sex inside the parked car at around 2:30 a.m. on June 4, 2014 in Bgy. Plainview.
The lovers were accused of indecency and brought to the MAC office at the Mandaluyong City Hall and allegedly detained them for six hours without filing charges.
According to police, the four suspects also allegedly extorted money from the two in exchange for their release.
It was learned from police that the boy is reportedly a nephew of a Court of Appeals (CA) associate justice.
A track team from the Mandaluyong police launched a manhunt operation against the suspects after they were charged in court.
They were finally captured after an informant tipped authorities that they were seen roaming in the neighborhood.
The suspects did not resist the arresting police officers.
The four are currently in custody of Mandaluyong police detention cell with no bail recommended.
