FOUR more persons attempting to enter the province were arrested at the border checkpoint after the police discovered they submitted fake travel authority to gain entry.
Arrested were the driver Lex de Nava, 47, a resident of Gapan, Nueva Ecija, and passengers Lorna Caido, 52, and two minors, all residents of Barangay Baraca, Villasis town, all locally stranded individuals (LSI).
When the police flagged down the car driven by Nava and verified the quick response (QR) code embedded in their respective travel authority, it turned out the QR code in the travel authority was registered to different names.
Further inspection revealed their Joint Task Force Covid Shield travel authority were also forged.
The suspects were taken into police custody, while charges in violation of Article 172 (Falsification by private individual and use of Falsified Documents) and RA 11469 (Bayanihan Heal As One Act) are being prepared against them. (Ahikam Pasion)
