Two operatives of the City Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group were relieved by Chief Supt. Cipriano Querol, Western Visayas police director, and temporarily assigned to the Police Regional Special Operations Group, effective Tuesday.
CAIDSTOG head, Supt. Santiago Rapiz, identified those relieved as Police Officer 3 Claro Gordoncillo and PO2 Rey Villanueva, who will be assigned to the RSOG until October 17.
“We don't know the reason for their reliefs, but since there is an order from the Regional Police Office, they have to comply”, Rapiz said, adding that CAIDSTOG will get additional personnel as the order of Querol left a vacuum in the group.
Senior Insp. Joemarie Occeño was also relieved as CAIDSTOG head last month for unknown reasons, and was assigned to the Antique Police Provincial Office.*APN

An Indian national sought police help yesterday, claiming she was held-up in Brgy. Cabug, Bacolod City.
Keranpal Kaur, 29, of Capitol Hills Subdivision in Brgy. Estefania, Bacolod, told the police she was about to board her motorcycle where her driver was waiting, when two men approached her.
Kaur claimed one of the suspects threatened her with a .38 caliber revolver, declared a hold-up and took her P3,500 in cash. The suspects also mauled her driver, Rene Juanillo, 45, of Puentevella Subdivision in Brgy. Taculing, Bacolod, and used her red Honda motorcycle as get-away vehicle, she said.
The motorcycle was later recovered in Purok Villa Lourdes, Brgy. Pahanocoy, Senior Police Officer 1 Ariel Sevilla, case investigator, told the DAILY STAR.
Kaur said one suspect was wearing a hood, and the other was clad in a white sweater and T-shirt, and was about 5 feet and 6 inches to 7 inches tall.
Meanwhile, Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz, Bacolod police director, gave Station 4 commander, Supt. Leonardo Borromeo, an ultimatum on the arrest of robbers victimizing residents in Brgy. Villamonte.
Several residents wrote Brgy. Captain Drebie Las Piñas recently about their concerns regarding successive robbery incidents in Brgy. Villamonte.
De la Paz, however, said they have been intensifying police visibility in the barangay to curb street crimes, like hold-up. In fact, a notorious robber was arrested in the area last week, and is now detained at the lock-up cell of Police Station 4, he added.*APN
