COTABATO CITY – Agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) raided here Wednesday a printing shop allegedly involved in the printing of fake public documents and arrested its owner.
Marlon Toledo, supervising agent for NBI – Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), identified the suspect as Adamson Areola Yap, owner of the Adamson Printing Shop along Jose Lim St., Barangay Poblacion 5, Cotabato City.
NBI agents recovered from the shop some fake Commission on Elections (Comelec) identification cards, school IDs, driver’s licenses, and bogus Philippine National Police and barangay clearances.
Toledo told reporters that the NBI received complaints from the Comelec office here against the alleged illegal operation of the printing shop.
He said an official of that office complained that the printing shop had been printing bogus Comelec ID cards as well as other government documents.
Toledo said the shop owner and his workers denied they were into the illegal printing business but the NBI official said they will have their day in court. -PNA
