Three murder suspects in Valladolid, and a wanted person charged for robbery in Victorias City, Negros Occidental, were accounted for by the police on July 26, police records show.
Operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group apprehended Richard Gayapa, alias TongTong, and Marlon Zapanta Jr., alias Gamay, in Brgy. Batuan, Valladolid, by virtue of an arrest warrant issued by Bago Regional Trial Court Judge Frances Guanzon, for the crime of murder.
Gayapa and Zapanta were denied bail by Guanzon.
The CIDG operatives headed by PO2 Juery Padayhog were assisted by Valladolid policemen and CIS agents in the serving of the arrest warrant to Gayapa and Zapanta.
CIDG Negros Occidental head, Chief Insp. Crisenciano Cordero, also reported the arrest of John Mark de la Cruz, 21, at 5 p.m. Thursday in Valladolid for murder charge. The warrant was issued by Guanzon, who denied him bail.
Policemen also arrested Federico Soberano, 29, at Osmeña Avenue in Victorias City, by virtue of an arrest warrant issued by Silay RTC Judge Felipe Banzon, for the crime of robbery.
Banzon has recommended P100,000 as bail for Soberano, 29, who is now detained at the Victorias City Police Station jail.
Cordero said they are intensifying their campaign for the arrest of wanted persons since it is an objective of Philippine National Police chief Nicanor Bartolome*GPB/APN
