LUCENA CITY - The Quezon Police Provincial Office is now tracking down a police Sergeant who reportedly went AWOL (absent without official leave) after he was tested positive for shabu.

Quezon police director Col. Audie Madrideo said he has ordered his operatives from Provincial Intelligence Branch and Lucena City police station to locate PSSG Mark Reil Canilon, assigned at the City Drug Enforcement Unit (CDEU) and resident of Rizal province.

Madrideo said he issued the order in consonance with the instruction of Calabarzon police director Beig. Gen. Vicente Danao, Jr. to find Canilon and have him disarmed.

“Once accounted and disarmed of his service pistol, Canilon will also be asked to explain why he did not report to duty shortly after undergoing a surprise drug test on Wednesday”, said Madrideo.

He said the on the spot drug test of 24 police non- commosioned officers, most of them are members of CDEU and Intelligence Section of the City police station, was ordered by Danao on Wednesday after the regional director received reports that some of them are in cahoots with drug syndicates.

There are also reports that some of the cops even recycle confiscated shabu, Madrideo said.


Early that day, Danao ordered the immediate relief of Lt. Col. Reydante Ariza, chief of Lucena City police station over negligence of duty after he inspected the city police headquarters where he found only seven policemen, two of them sleeping while on duty.

Madrideo said Canilon is among the few trusted operators of Ariza will be charged administratively once the confirmatory results of the drug test turned positive.

Rumors have it that Danao has offered P200,000 bounty for any policeman who can arrest and kill Canilon, but Madrideo did not confirm this.

Ariza was reassigned at Calabarzon police headquarters and was replaced by Lt. Col. Romulo Albacea.
