The chief of Argao police station in Cebu is now facing multiple charges after he caught sleeping with a female inmate in his office.
Major Ildefonso Miranda was caught by the authorities on Friday night and found that he’s sleeping with the 23-year-old detainee, Jean Claudia De Guzman.
They also found several photos of Miranda having sweet moments with De Guzman.
According to the investigators, Miranda even brought De Guzman outside the police station several times and went to other places in Cebu to have a romantic date.
“The girl was even brought here in Cebu City, naga-date pa sila…a very breach of discipline to a police officer,” Police Regional Office-7 Director Albert Ignatius Ferro said.
While the real relationship between Miranda and De Guzman is not yet been proven, the scene they found during the entrapment operation is already evidence against the police chief.
Police Director Roderick Mariano also ordered all police personnel under Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO) to be investigated asking why no one reported the activities of Miranda earlier.
“Why is it na nangyari yun na may desk officer tayo, may deputy… bakit nangyari ito na hindi nare-report sa atin,” Mariano asked.
After being caught, Miranda insisted that what he did is not wrong and his only mistake is that he fell in love with the wrong person.
“Hindi ako nahihiya kasi hindi naman ako gumawa ng karumal dumal na kasalanan, ang tanging mali ko lang ay ang magmahal,” he told the Freeman newspaper.
Miranda is going to be replaced by Police Captain Elstone Dabon, Jr. from Mandaue City as the chief of Argao police.
