Students nabbed for truancy, driving sans license

LAOAC—March 22 was a date that will be long remembered by ten students who were endorsed to the Laoac Police Station for loitering outside the school during school hours and another who was caught by the police while driving a motorcycle without a plate number and a driving license.

The 10 were slapped with a violation of the Anti-Truancy Ordinance (Discipline Zone) while the student caught driving the motorcycle was charged with violation of Municipal Ordinance No. 15-008 (Laoac Traffic Code/Discipline Zone).

Charged with violation of the Anti-Truancy Law for loitering outside their school premises during class hours were Reymart Ellana, 15, Arnel Mico Molina, 12; Kaugn Christian Isla, 13; John Lorence Monfero, 13; Mark John Patubo, 15; and Ace Laca, 12, all in Grade 7; Jan Miguel Carella, 14; and Elton Capua, both in Grade 8; John Loyd Cariño, 14; and John Patrick Cariño, both in Grade 9.

After their documentation at the local police station, the students were turned over to the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office and eventually to their respective parents/guardians.

It was Renato Hortaleza, a high school student, who was flagged down by the police for driving a motorcycle without a plate number, without a driver’s license and for not wearing a crash helmet.

The motorcycle was released to the owner of the unit after he presented the ownership documents to the police.  Hortaleza was released to the custody of the MSWDO. (Leonardo Micua)
