Police arrested 4 people selling overpriced alcohol, includes government employee

Four were arrested including a government employee and a village watchman on Sunday, March 29, for allegedly selling overpriced ethyl alcohol in Barangay Villamonte in Bacolod City.

Captured individuals were Mary Grace Alojipan, 43, a government employee of Pontevedra town; village watchman Janice Fernandez, 48; George Chua, 55, all from Barangay Poblacion 1 in Pontevedra and; Ricardo Uy, 52, of Barangay 17 in Bacolod City.

Police Chief Master Sergeant Ramiro Gocotano, officer-in-charge of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG)-Bacolod, said they initiated a transaction to Alojipan  to buy 25 containers of alcohol after a tip was given saying that she was selling overpriced alcohol online.

The suspects allegedly sold 18-liter containers of alcohol at P3,900 each but based on the suggested retail price from the Department of Trade and Industry, a container of the disinfectant should only cost P2,673, at P148.50 per liter.

At the end of the operation, the authorities recovered the boodle money and a total of 49 containers of ethyl alcohol worth P130,000.
