MANILA, Philippines — A policeman was arrested for allegedly driving a stolen vehicle in Quezon City yesterday.

Personnel of the Highway Patrol Group (HPG) flagged down SM/Sgt. Danilo Pacurib, who is assigned to the Payatas police station, while he was driving a Hyundai Sante Fe along Commonwealth Avenue at around 8 a.m. over improvised plates.

“The vehicle was stolen at gunpoint” in 2016, HPG director Brig. Gen. Alexander Tagum said in a news briefing.

Pacurib, who is in civilian clothes, did not grant an interview when presented to reporters. He faces charges of violating Republic Act 10883, the anti-carnapping law; RA 4136, the land transportation and traffic code; and Presidential Decree 1612, the anti-fencing law.

The vehicle is among the 15 vehicles impounded by the HPG yesterday for having spurious documents.
