According to local news reports, Justino Casunga, the Politiko’s EA, filed the complaint against Jail Officer 1 Juanito Estrebor II of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), who was assigned to a Quezon City Jail. Casunga stated that Estrebor was seen roaming with a firearm near his house.
Initial investigation showed that the executive assistant previously reported an unidentified male roaming near his place and requested for temporary security from the Philippine National Police.
The PNP reported that on July 25, Casunga was approached by the suspect with a firearm as he alighted his vehicle, but quickly turned back upon seeing the two PNP personnel, assigned to the executive assistant. The suspect was confronted and arrested by the security detail.
