POLICEMEN arrested Monday evening, February 18, two cops who were caught drinking in a canteen in Quezon City.
The Philippine National Police (PNP) Counter-Intelligence Task Force (CITF) said arrested were Senior Police Officer 1 Franklin Francisco Nariz and Police Officer 3 Tristan Bardon Callao.
Nariz is a member of the Maritime Group assigned at the PNP headquarters in Camp Crame, while Callao is a member of the Headquarters Support Service.
The CITF said the two were arrested while having a drinking session at Korab’s Canteen in Socorro, Quezon City around 10 p.m. Monday.
Earlier, PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde issued an order barring policemen from drinking alcoholic beverages in public places, as well as going to night clubs and gambling dens and other places devoted to vices.
Albayalde said violation of the order is tantamount to grave misconduct, which is punishable by dismissal from service. (SunStar Philippines)
