LTFRB sets hearing of 'Laglag Bala' modus of taxi driver

MANILA, Nov. 2 (PNA) -- The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) is set to conduct a hearing on a taxi driver allegedly involved in the “Laglag Bala” modus.

The Laglag Bala modus is known for planting a bullet in the luggages of passengers, making them liable for illegal possession of ammunition.

LTFRB Chairman Winston Ginez said that the hearing will take place on Nov. 4 (Wednesday), 9 a.m. at the LTFRB main office in Quezon City.

On its official Twitter account, the Board shared a screenshot of a certain Julius Habana reporting a taxi with licensed plate no. UVK 190.

Habana said that his friend (name not mentioned) was on his way to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to catch an international flight when he noticed the taxi driver slip something inside his bag.

Instead of heading straight to the airport, his friend dropped by his boarding house where he checked his bag and found a .38 caliber bullet.

The Board however, has yet to confirm this in the hearing. (PNA)
