Foreign nationals arrested in Parañaque City for illegal possession of a gun with live ammunition

Recently in the City of Parañaque, two foreign nationals – one Chinese and one Malaysian – were apprehended by the local police at the Okada Resorts & Casino as a gun inside a bag was found by x-ray, according to a report by GMA Network. An escape attempt by the suspects also happened.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the most recent report of the GMA News report. Some parts in boldface…

Two foreign nationals were arrested after a pistol was found in their bag while passing through an x-ray machine at a hotel entrance in Parañaque City on May 10, according to the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO).

Suspects Andrew Too Teck Wee, 34, a Malaysian and resident of Sta. Cruz, Laguna, and Zheng Yi, 29, a Chinese from Makati City, were nabbed by Parañaque Police around 10:53 p.m. at the VIP lobby entrance of Okada Resorts and Casino.

Based on a police report, the security x-ray operators saw a gun inside one of the bags allegedly owned by Yi through the monitor.

The security personnel then called for police assistance from the Tambo Sub-Station 2.

Wee and Yi also tried to escape but they were cornered by security personnel and were brought to the hotel’s office for investigation.

During the interrogation, the suspects failed to show the necessary documents authorizing them to carry a .40 pistol loaded with live ammunition.

Seized from the suspects were one Taurus caliber .40 pistol model PT 24/7 Pro with serial number SCP38509 and five pieces caliber .40 live ammunition.
