SANTO DOMINGO. – National Drugs Control Agency (DNCD) president Rolando Rosado affirmed Wednesday noon that vehicle theft was the motive behind the murder of his assistant, Army colonel Cesar Augusto Ubrí, gunned down Sunday night in the sector Las Praderas, in the capital.
The crime’s unprecedented ramifications have stupefied society, especially the version that the assassins acted on an auto parts store owner’s request to steal three SUVs similar to the Toyota driven by the victim.
Rosado said Police agent Wascar Antonio Cavalo Montero and the civilian Michel Cury were arrested and have been charged in the case, as well as the parts store owner.
In a joint press conference, Police chief Jose A. Polanco said the murder weapon, a 12 gauge shogun, a pistol, and four bullet-proof vests, among other military gear, were seized from the alleged murderers. He said Cavalo’s father, the psychologist and Police major Wascar Cavalo Deñó, was also suspended, “for failing to control his son’s conduct.”
The Police also suspended Cavalo Montero’s commanding officer, colonel Manuel de Jesus Feliz.
Police spokesman Maximo Aybar revealed that despite that the murder suspect had been charged with theft and murder barely three years ago, managed to rejoin the Police.
