Police Officer 1 Ryan Encarnacion, who was among the six suspects arrested during a raid at the house of Wendell Mabugat Thursday at Purok Bulgan, Brgy. 1 in Bacolod City, may face dismissal from the police service for being Absent Without Leave (AWOL).
Senior Supt. Flynn Dongbo, acting director of the Bacolod City Police Office, yesterday confirmed that Encarnacion has been AWOL since December 2015.
Dongbo said the administrative charges for being AWOL against Encarnacion, who used to be assigned at the BCPO Station 8, are now up for resolution by the Police Regional Office 18.
The raid, that was conducted by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, through a search warrant, led to the arrest of Mabugat, Ryan Fegidero, Reylan Joson, Melvin Generoso Jr. and Kirby Andrada.
The police raiding team also recovered an elongated sachet of suspected shabu, 62 plastic sachets containing shabu residue, a .22 caliber revolver with four live ammunition, P42,000 in cash, a police uniform with a patch of BCPO, and a black bag with the name of a police officer.
Encarnacion and the five other arrested suspects are now in jail.
Dongbo encouraged policemen to monitor closely and immediately act on it, if their family members or relatives suspected to be engaged in the illegal drug trade.
The recovery of a police uniform and a black bag with the name of a police officer in the house of Mabugat is now being investigated also by the CIDG.*GPB
