Sibakan pa more: Albayalde replaces chiefs of 3 police stations in Manila, QC


The heads of three police stations in Manila and Quezon City were sacked by National Capital Region Police Office chief Director Oscar Albayalde.

Albayalde was apparently not satisfied with the performance of the three station commanders.

The three are Caloocan City Senior Supt. Jemar Modequillo, Manila Police District Station 10 Supt. Amante Daro and Quezon City Police District Station 10 Supt. Christian dela Cruz.

Senior Supt. Restituto Arcangel will replace Modequillo as officer-in-charge of the Caloocan City police.

“This is because of the unsolved series of incidents in his area,” said Albayalde when asked about Modequillo’s removal.

Among the unresolved incidents include shootings involving motorcycle-riding gunmen, he said.

Modequillo has been the chief of Caloocan police for six few months after replacing Senior Supt. Chito Bersaluna who was sacked due to the controversial killings of minors Carl Angelo Arnaiz and Kian Lloyd delos Santos, which resulted in the relief of the entire Caloocan police force.

Albayalde also sacked Manila Supt. Daro due to unresolved cases of theft and robbery in his area of Binondo and Divisoria. Daro was replaced by Supt. Julius Domingo.

Dela Cruz, meanwhile, who headed Kamuning police station, was relieved for “having a filthy police station” according to Albayalde.

Albayalde himself witnessed the apparent negligence of Dela Cruz when he made a surprise visit to the station recently.

Dela Cruz’s replacement will be left to QCPD Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar.
