LEGAZPI CITY, April 14 (PNA)—The local police recovered a motorcycle which was reported stolen from its owner about four months ago, a police report released over the weekend said. The Philippine National Police (PNP) Albay provincial office based at Camp Gen. Simeon Ola here said the vehicle was intercepted by joint elements of the Legazpi City Police Office led by Senior Insp. Jan King Calipay and the Bicol police’s Regional Special Operations Group (RSOG) led by Senior Insp. Steve Dela Rosa in a checkpoint at Barangay Baybay here.

Upon verification, the motorcycle, colored black and bearing license plate number EI 2314, was the same vehicle originally colored yellow and white which was reported by its owner Tiffany Celis to be stolen from its garage in Barangay Our Lady’s Village here on Dec. 22 last year, according to the report.

Its driver identified in the report as Randy Ortisio, 21, who claimed that the motorcycle was sold to him by somebody, was apprehended and charged for violation of Presidential Decree 1612 or the Anti-Fencing Law.

The court has recommended a bail of P30,000 for the temporary liberty of Ortisio who, as of this report, remains in the custody of the LCPO pending issuance of a jail commitment order from the same court, the report added.(PNA)
