    THE Traffic Management Group of the Philippine National Police is pushing for tougher punishment for car thieves and their "fences," the people who buy stolen motor vehicles.

    "We want much tougher jail terms and a law that will make the crime of carnapping a non-bailable offense, a kind of law that is comparable with the current law on illegal drug trafficking and kidnapping," PNP-TMG officer-in-charge Chief Supt. Augusto P. Angcanan Jr. told the People's Journal yesterday.

    The TMG made the proposal after observing that suspects arrested in the past are still involved in car theft up to now.

    Angcanan cited the case of Randy Madrigal, one of the country's most wanted car thieves, who was freed after posting bail of P240,000.

    Madrigal was arrested by TMG agents in his hideout in La Union. He is wanted for several cases of car theft.

    "They can easily afford the maximum bail of P180,000 for carnapping. Kung anti-fencing naman ang kaso, chicken feed lang sa kanila because the amount of bail will depend on the value of the stolen vehicle recovered from their possession," Angcanan said.

    Stealing cars would not be a thriving industry if there is no market for stolen motor vehicles, he added.

    "I want all these fences identified and sent to jail as soon as possible," he said.

    "Me report kami na itong mga 'fences' na ito ang siyang tumatawag sa mga carnappers at nagsasabi kung anong klaseng sasakyan ang kailangan nila. Sila ang umoorder ng ka-karnapin," Angcanan said.

    In Central Luzon, Regional Traffic Management Office 3 commander Supt. Eleuterio N. Gutierrez Jr. has ordered round-the-clock security in and around Capalangan in Apalit, Pampanga and Gatbuca in Calumpit, Bulacan, all said to be dumping grounds of cars stolen in Metro Manila.

    "These areas are being inhabited by both legitimate and illegitimate brand-new or second-hand spare parts dealers, parang sa Banaue, Quezon City pero nangako na sa amin ang mga legitimate owners na sila mismo ang tutulong sa amin na mawala ang masamang reputation sa kanilang lugar," Gutierrez told PJ.

    "We have the permission of Apalit Mayor Tirso Lacanilao here. Gusto niya rin talagang mawala ang negative reputation ng Capalangan with the help of the legitimate dealers," he said.

    Gutierrez said that in most cases, scrap materials sold by insurance companies and imported vehicle parts and accessories are being mixed with cannibalized parts to elude detection.

    Angcanan ordered a crackdown on "fences and masterminds" of car theft groups nationwide, particularly in Quezon City following a series of unsolved car thefts in the city.

    with regards to a stricter law, all i can say is that its easy to create one. but its hard to implement it. or may iping matalas nga, tamad naman mangagat ng kaaway. tsk..tsk..tsk
