The Taguig police’s Intelligence Section received reliable information from a barangay information network (BIN) that the Utto Robbery Hold-Up Group would operate along A. Bonifacio Street. Varias was nabbed during the police operation.

Based on records, the police alleged that Varias is a member of the criminal group responsible for robbery-hold-ups and proliferation of illegal drugs in Taguig.

Recovered from his possession were a .38-caliber revolver with two live ammunition, a fragmentation hand grenade, one motorcycle without a plate number, PHMI ID and badge, and driver’s license.

The police will file charges of violations of Republic Act 10591 for illegal possession of firearm and ammunition; Republic Act 9516 for illegal possession of explosive and Omnibus Election Code.
