ORMOC CITY-Local police arrested a driver and impounded his motorcycle for violation of traffic laws after he was flagged down by local police who conducted a mobile patrol at about 2:45 pm on Thursday (Sept.21) in Barangay San Isidro, Biliran, Biliran.

The violator was identified as Mathew Odullada, legal age, single, and a resident of Brgy. Tigbawan, Leyte, Leyte.

Investigation conducted by the local police disclosed that while the local police were conducting their mobile patrol in the town proper, they saw Odullada driving a single motorcycle.

When the police asked him for his license and other document, Odullada failed to produce these documents, prompting the police to arrest him.

The police immediately issued a temporary operator permit to the owner and impounded his vehicle which was subsequently turned over to the Land Transportation Office in Naval, the provincial capital of Biliran.

The driver was penalized P15,000 for his violation. (ROBERT DEJON)
