Asingan cops arrest 38-year old mom


ASINGAN — A 38-year-old mother, whose alleged business is to buy and sell stolen items, from guns to motorcycles and goats, was arrested by lawmen who served a search warrant at her premises in Barangay Poblacion East, Asingan on March 7.

P/Sr. Supt. Ronald Oliver Lee, provincial police director, identified the suspect as Cristina Ballicud, was also tagged as a drug personality in the watchlist of the Asingan police.

P/ Sr. Inspector Renante Organista, Asingan deputy police chief, said, among the confiscated items were one defaced caliber 22 (paltik), 7 undocumented motorcycles and three tricycles, more than 30 live goats, five sachets of suspected shabu and P431,900.00 cash in varied denominations.

Asingan Police said Balicud was the subject of closed investigation and monitoring for sometime.

Organista said they are still looking deeper into Balicud’s involvement in a syndicate based on evidence gathered from her.

They initially filed cases for violation of Republic Act numbers 10591 and 9165 for illegal possession of firearms and illegal drugs respectively.

The case for buying stolen goats and motorcycles will be filed once victims come forward to the police station to file the charges, Organista said.

The motorcycles and tricycles were brought to the Asingan Police Station for proper verification by the Highway Patrol Group and Land Transportation Office in Urdaneta City. (Ding Micua/Tita Roces/Nora Dominguez)
