(Metro News) QCPD provides security for QC-based car dealers

MANILA, Jan. 19 – The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) said Wednesday it is providing tighter security to used car dealers in Quezon City following the recent incidents of abduction and brutal murders linked to car thefts.

In a news conference, QCPD director Chief Superintendent Benjardi Mantele said he already ordered all QC station commanders to coordinate closely with dealers of used cars so his men could be immediately alerted of any spurious buyers or criminal groups targeting these businessmen.

Mantele said station commanders shall give their contact numbers to the car dealers so they can immediately call QCPD operatives.

Another measure Quezon City police will be implementing is increased police visibility near car dealership establishments.

This move came after the death of Oliver Lozano’s son, Emerson and other car dealer Venson Evangelista.

Meanwhile, the family of Evangelista is offering a reward for information leading to the killers.

Arsenio Evangelista, who identified the remains of his son Venson Evangelista on Tuesday, said his friends are pooling together money for the reward, but did not say how much the amount will be.

"Yes, we will offer a reward. We are still determining how much to offer, but I am heartened that my friends are pooling their resources for the reward offer," he said.

He said he is confident the police will solve the case. (PNA) LAM/JCA
