Puerto PNP urges public for info in truck driver slay


The Puerto Princesa City Police Office (PPCPO) has asked to the public for any information that would lead to the arrest of the suspect in the murder of a truck driver last October 17 in Purok Honda Bay, Barangay Sta. Lourdes.

Insp. Mark Anthony Maceda, PPCPO Station 2 deputy commander, has identified the suspect in the stabbing of LV Policarpio Trading and Construction truck driver Ever Jopson as Rey Art Guinocan.

Maceda said Guinocan, also a driver went into hiding after stabbing Jopson multiple times.

“Nananawagan po kami sa lahat ng kamag-anak ni Guinocan na kung nasaan man siya ay sumuko na kasi mas magandang harapin na lang niya ‘yong problema niya ng mas maaga kesa magtago siya, mahihirapan lang siya nang husto,” Maceda said.

A witness, Dennis Pasiliao, reportedly saw Guinocan running away from a nearby store where Jopson was stabbed at around 12:45 a.m.

“Bale siya (Guinocan) lang talaga ang pumatay, kasi nakunan niya (Pasiliao) ng video. Right after na masaksak, lumabas ‘to ‘yong kaibigan niya (witness), nabidyuhan niya ‘yong suspek. Nagkaroon ng komosyon sa labas ng bahay, narinig nitong kaibigan ng victim, nilabas niya. So nakita niya doon ‘yong victim, may saksak na, nakahandusay na. Ang sabi naman ng suspek, kinursonada daw siya ng victim, pero ang victim natin is lasing. May dalang patalim itong suspek, sinaksak niya,” Maceda said

Maceda said the victim and suspect both have no past criminal record from any police stations in the city.

Lloyd Villagracia Policarpio, CEO and one of the owners of LV Policarpio Trading and Construction earlier said that Jopson was temporarily residing at their satellite project near the Magarwak area.

Policarpio said the victim Jopson was one of his longest-serving 10-wheeler truck drivers of her company and with a good track record.

“Isa ‘to sa mga alam ko na walang naging kaaway, even sa mga kasama niya. Malungkot kasi he left with five minor kids, masakit. Humihingi na rin ako ng tulong sa mga kababayan natin… kung maari po sana ay makapag-bigay ng information, kahit ‘yon lang po sana. Sana magkaroon ng hustisya,” Policarpio said.
