The Officials of the Bureau of Customs (BOC)-Northern Mindanao said that the man killed in a shooting incident was not a Customs employee.
In an article from Sunstar Cagayan de Oro, the Cebu City resident Roy Ancajas who was found dead near the Police Precinct in Barangay Macasandig was not an employee of the BOC despite the ID that was found in the crime scene that said he was connected to the Customs police.
According to Macasandig Police Commander Senior Inspector Abdul Alim Sumandar, there are possibilities that a .45 caliber was used to kill Ancajas based on the eight pieces of spent cartridges recovered from the crime scene.
Police investigators also found other things that might shed light to the investigation such as a wristwatch, a sling bag, a backpack containing several documents, and a pink Nissan Sentra sedan bearing plate no. WFG-678.
Roman Moscoso, Customs Police Chief Region 10, said that it was also revealed that Ancajas recently had an argument with a broker named Joed Pasasadaba who was immediately sent to a hospital to treat his wounds that resulted from the gunfight.
Meanwhile, Pasasadaba’s driver, Segfried Roxas, is now under the custody of police authorities after he tipped them in obtaining two .45 caliber handguns that were used in the crime.
Alvin Enciso, Head of the BOC 10’s Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS), said that Ancajas was not indeed connected to the BOC based on the records of the bureau.
He said, however, that the agency will include in their investigation to determine how Ancajas secured a Custom’s Police ID with the signature of Special Agent 2 Pedro Amante, Enforcement Security Service (ESS) Administrative Officer.
On the other hand, Amante defended himself and said that the signature affixed on the ID was forged and even though that his signature was affixed, he was in no way allowed to be the signatory of Customs police ID cards.
