Cops show no mercy on 65 liquor ban violators
by BMC release

The more than 65 individuals in Baguio and Benguet who were arrested for violation of the liquor ban during the synchronized barangay and Sangguniang Kabaatan elections learned their lesson the hard way.

This as S/Supt. Ramil Saculles, director of the Baguio City Police Office, reported last week that the lowest possible bail bond set for each violator is P6,000 but the court can set the bail bond up to maximum of P60,000.

But it was not immediately known how much bail bond was set by a Baguio court for the 30 individuals, who were arrested inside Woodstock Videoke and Resto Bar along Gen. Luna Road and at D” Class Batch Bar along Abanao for violation of the liquor ban.

The liquor ban in relation to the May 14 elections started past midnight of May 12 and ended at 12:01 a.m. of May 15.

BCPO operatives conducted an inspection at Woodstock Videoke and Resto Bar at 10:45 p.m. of May 13 and at 11:35 p.m. of the same date at D” Class Batch Bar.

Police operatives seized various kinds of liquors served to customers inside the two establishments.

Saculles said there was a relentless campaign against violators of liquor ban in the city to warn those who have been ignoring the Omnibus Election Code during election period.

The Omnibus Election Code states selling, furnishing, offering, buying, serving, or taking intoxicating liquor is prohibited during election.

In La Trinidad, Benguet, C/Insp. Benson Macli-ing, the town police chief, said 35 violators were arrested for violating the liquor ban. The violators were arrested in different establishments and residential houses in the municipality.

The violators were nabbed by the La Trinidad police in barangays Balili, Pico, Betag, and Bahong on May 13.

If found guilty by the court, the jail term imposed on violators is one year to six years.

C/Supt. Edward E. Caranza, Police Regional Office-Cordillera director, earlier directed the police to strictly implement the liquor ban and apprehend violators.

The police, meanwhile, recorded nine election-related incidents during the period, two of which are shooting incidents, three incidents of violation of the gun ban through Commission on Elections checkpoints, two incidents of violation of gun ban through police response, one incident of vote buying, and one incident of threat and trespass to dwelling.

The apprehension of gun ban violators resulted in the arrest of 26 individuals and confiscation of 27 firearms through search warrant, two deadly weapons, 325 pieces of dynamite, two hand grenades, one piece of unexploded ordnance, and 688 rounds of ammunition.
