Operatives from the Aritao Police Station recovered Thursday the car of the Philippine Army reservist tagged as the suspect in a road rage shooting incident in Quiapo, Manila.

Based on records, a certain Carlos C. Rada Jr., a resident of Taguig City, is the owner of the vehicle.
However, Tanto acquired it from Rada through a memorandum of agreement dated June 1.
Investigation results disclosed that the suspect left the car, which was used as a get-away vehicle at the house of his brother in-law identified as Jonathan Leano y Palayon, 39, a discharged member of the Philippine Marines and a resident at Puron 3, Kirang Aritao, Nueva Vizcaya,
Leano said Tanto informed him of his plan to go to Bataan on Wednesday.

The car was brought to Aritao Police Station for proper disposition prior to its turn-over to the PNP headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City.
