TACLOBAN CITY – A wannabe policeman who has taken to wearing a real cop’s uniform in conjunction with a toy gun and transistor radio, was handcuffed by real lawmen here Monday following complaints he was harassing voters.
Chief Supt. Gilbert Cruz, Eastern Visayas police regional director, said the poseur, identified as Jay Bernard Salidaga, was nabbed after several residents of Barangay Binobokalan in Hinabangan town told police he has been pressing some of them to vote for relatives running in the barangay elections.
Salidaga is now detained at the Samar Police Provincial Office and will be charged for usurpation.
