Businessman clarifies police story
EFREN J. GAMBOA, Baguio City

This has reference to the story published on page 2 of the Baguio Midland Courier on July 2 titled “Police arrest 12 wanted persons in 24 hours.”

The story states that,  I, Efred Gamboa, was one of those arrested between June 29 to June 30. The report says I was arrested at 10:50 a.m. for reckless imprudence resulting to damage to property with a bail of P2,000 and I was brought to the court and posted bail.

The truth is, I personally proceed to Municipal Trial Court Branch 4 and was never arrested upon knowing that the counter affidavit submitted by my lawyer was denied.

In addition, I was the one bumped at the back by a truck, with pictures submitted to Prosecutor’s Office. To my surprise, I was the one who was served with a warrant.

Hoping that this clarifies the report, which was attributed to the police.
