Cops arrest wanted person posing as mediaman

Members of the Guinobatan Municipal Police Office arrested inside their office a man who had introduced himself as a mediaman and was partaking of the lunch they had prepared to celebrate the town fiesta.

Vedasto Ocfemia, 54, and a resident Barangay Upper Binogsacan, Guinobatan, did not resist arrest when collared by the GMPO members while eating lunch with his companions inside the police office at about 12:30 p.m.

A report said a member of the GMPO recognized Ocfemia as a wanted person with warrant of arrest so he immediately got a copy of the document and showed it to the suspect.

Ocfemia denied at first that he was the person in the warrant of arrest and showed various identification cards of radio stations and newspapers to prove that he is a member of the media in Bicol.

Police said he is wanted for violation of Sec. 1 of Republic Act 8294 or illegal possession of firearm and has a bail of Php 80,000 for his temporary liberty.

Ocfemia is now detained at the police office and awaiting commitment to the court that issued the arrest warrant for him. (PNA)
