- The cops raided the house of the man who went viral for hitting officers
- Upon the raid, the cops found explosives and firearms
- According to the accused, the police have planted those guns and grenades
The police conducted a raid in two properties owned by the couple in a viral video who were seen hitting traffic enforcers.
The Makati City Regional Trial Court granted a search warrant to raid two residential houses in an exclusive subdivision reportedly owned by a man named Arnold Aquino Padilla.
KAMI learned from Super Radyo DZBB that the police raided both Padilla’s house and the apartment across the street where his bodyguards reside.
Firearms and explosives were found inside a cabinet in Padilla’s pantry. He admitted owning two pistols and said that those have license.
However, he denied owning the guns and grenades. Instead, he claimed that the police have planted those in his house.
Along with the two pistols that have been seized by the police were a shotgun and two grenades.
Padilla has been facing a lot of complaints since then. After a video of him went viral, the police stated that they have been conducting a case build-up even before the incident. There have been reports saying that Padilla has been threatening people with his firearms.
According to National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Director Guillermo Eleazar,
"Napag-alaman natin na as early as April pala na-revoke na ang kanyang mga lisensya kasi nag-submit siya ng fake drug test result nung mag-aapply siya ng license to possess firearms,"
Back in 2015, Padilla faced a blotter report where he was accused of threatening and spatting a guard in their subdivision. Padilla was also the primary suspect for his sister’s death who died after receiving a gift that had five hand grenades and then exploded.
