Earlier this week a concerned netizen named Marites Cuya sent us at Manila Channel a message regarding this man who was so brute and arrogant and kept on introducing himself as a high-ranking policeman. With his slew of SUVs, this man kept on bragging about his position to intimidate people, in particular traffic enforcers.
Oh wait-that’s not all. He has also been found to be moonlighting as a dance instructor who takes pray on elderly women to extort cash from them-and among his victims was her mother-in-law.
This is her message:
“Nagpapangap na pulis yan at napakayabang modus nyan ay maging dance instructor sa bolrum na part time na work nya tapps nambibiktima ng mga mayayaman na matanda para gawing girlfriend o kung anu man dahil pulis daw sya eh siga siga dating nya at brusko na brusko sa mga nabibiktima nya isang sabi nya lang para humingi ng pera ay agad din nya nakukuha malaki nakuha na nta dito sa amin almost weekly napunta sa may labasan kasama ang anak at ginagamit na kasangkapan upang makuha ang pera sa matanda araw araw tumatawag dito at pag iba sumagot binababa ang phone may bago sya sasakyan na montero sport na hinihinalang binili nya na binigay ng byanan ko.malas lang sya kasi 1week syang snurvey ng pulis naia 3 na namimikup ng tao sa airport gamit ung kolorum na sasakyan na montero nung huliin sya nagpakilala sya na pulis at my id pa na sya daw ay supirentendent at may chapa at uniform pa”
But karma is so digital he just got a dose of his own medicine.
Now under authentic police custody, the man, identified as Dante Aragones, was arrested by airport police and officers from the LTFRB at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA-3) on Tuesday afternoon.
According to Ret. Gen. Neri Ilagan of the Airport Police Department, Aragones was being under surveillance for a week after being tipped by the LTFRB that the vehicle being used by Aragones is “colorum,” or doesn’t have the necessary documentation.
When apprehended by the authorities, Aragones even introduced himself as “Superintendent Aragones” of the PNP, and showed his “PNP ID.”
He is now being charged with usurpation of authority and illegal operation of a “colorum” vehicle by the airport authorities.
When interviewed by the media, Aragones had no choice but admit that his PNP identification is fake, and that he was only using it to avoid being called by traffic enforcers.
