Police Staff Sergeant Aldrine Agpad, a 36-year-old member of the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team in Tabuk City, met a tragic end in a suspected hit-and-run incident while pursuing his morning jog on Friday, December 1, 2023.

Early Morning Routine Turns Fatal

Agpad, committed to both physical fitness and his duty as a law enforcement officer, left his residence after 3:00 a.m. for a routine jog.

According to Manganip, a local resident reported hearing a loud crash around 3:41 a.m. Although the noise was significant, the resident refrained from investigating further. This piece of information becomes crucial in piecing together the timeline of events.

Search for the Culprit Intensifies

As the community mourns the loss of an officer committed to maintaining public safety, law enforcement intensifies efforts to locate the vehicle responsible. Authorities are meticulously reviewing CCTV footage to trace the movements of the unidentified vehicle.
