Byron charged for illegal possession of firearms

-

CEBU, Philippines - The Talisay City police yesterday charged former Capitol security consultant Byron Garcia for alleged illegal possession of firearms before the Talisay City Prosecutor’s Office.

The complaint stemmed from the September 18-incident wherein Garcia was allegedly wielding his AK-47 assault rifle at his neighbor, American national Wayne Morris inside the Corona del Mar subdivision.

Morris, in his affidavit sworn before Talisay City Prosecutor Marshal Rubia last Sept 22, said Byron brandished his gun to him while saying, “Oh, yeah? I may be a nobody but I have this.”

Byron, head of the homeowners’ association, got irked when Morris placed speed bumps in front of his house to slow down traffic.

The complaint was supposed to be endorsed to the city prosecutor last Thursday, but was denied as it lacked another important affidavit from Superintendent Rex Derilo, chief of the Firearms and Explosive, Security Agencies Guards Supervision Section (FESAGS).

SPO1 Joel Rosales, investigator of the case, said they were able to get Derilo’s affidavit at 3:45P.M.

The Permit to Carry Firearms Outside Residence (PTCFOR) secretariat, through its chief, PSSupt Alex Botes Sintin, had already certified that the said high-powered firearm has no permit to carry. (FREEMAN)
