Rising criminality has compelled the Philippine National Police (PNP) to intensify their efforts against illegal firearms and lawless elements.

According to the complainant identified as Jeremy Quizon, at around 6:00 P.M. on 14 February 2015 he heard gunshots emanating outside their compound. A moment later he heard another burst of fire and when he got out of their terrace he saw the suspect holding a gun alighting from his vehicle a Toyota Innova with plate number ZRD 177.

When the responding officers arrived, bystanders pointed to Windsor as the one who fired a gun indiscriminately and when the police officers accosted the suspect, he resisted arrest. He was, however, subdued with the effort of other policemen in the area.

Recovered from the suspect was a 9mm caliber loaded with magazine with ammunition and when he was bodily frisked, another three (3) magazines were discovered. The operatives also collected from the suspect’s vehicle the following:
  • one (1) Escort Magnum Shotgun
  • one (1) KG-9 Lugger Sub Machine Gun

  • two boxes of 9mm spent shells
  • personal IDs of the suspects

  • expired PTC under the name of the suspect
The suspect was charged for violation of RA 10591 (Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Law), Malicious Mischief, Resistance and Disobedience to Agent of Person in Authority and Alarm and Scandal.

PCSupt Pagdilao said that the arrest of the suspects is part of the QCPD’s continuous crime prevention and reduction program with the implementation of "Oplan Lambat Sibat" as ordered by no less than Secretary of the Interior and Local Government Mar Roxas and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista.

He also commended the operatives for their swift response for a call of such police assistance.
