Bulacan operations

More wanted offenders jailed.

MORE wanted persons in Bulacan province were hauled to jail by the local police in separate manhunt operations yesterday, a report to Police Regional Office 3 director, Brigadier General Rhodel O. Sermonia said.

Bulacan Police Provincial Office director, Colonel Lawrence B. Cajipe, said that one of the suspects identified as Danny Icleo Camposano alias ‘Danny Putol,’ the 4th most wanted drug personality in Marilao municipality, was arrested in a manhunt operation in Looban 2, Barangay Loma de Gato.

Cajipe said that the suspect was arrested by members of the Marilao Municipal Police Station on the strength of a warrant of arrest for murder with no bail recommended by a local court.

The suspect is wanted for the killing of one Joseph Balatucan inside the Felix Compound in Bgy. Loma de Gato on December 31, 2018. The official said that the suspect went into hiding in different parts of the province after being positively identified as the man who shot Balatucan to death.

Last Thursday, Bulacan policemen also arrested three suspected big-time drug traffickers in Central Luzon after they conspired to sell some P4.2 million worth of shabu to an undercover officer in Balagtas town.

Cajipe identified  the three suspects as John Carlo Villalobos, a resident of Olongapo City; and Rene Boy Cahanding and Ely Buenaventura, both residents of Subic, Zambales.

Cajipe said that the three suspects whose names are all included in the unified Philippine National Police and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency watch list were arrested in a buy-bust operation in Barangay Santol in Balagtas conducted by local drug enforcement operatives at 9:50 p.m. Thursday.

The official said that members of the Balagtas Municipal Police Station headed by Major Ronnie Pascua recovered four heat-sealed plastic sachets containing around 622 grams of the so-called ‘poor man’s cocaine’ worth P4.233 million and the buy-bust money topped by some marked P1,000 bills from the suspects.

Cajipe said that four other suspected drug dealers in the province were arrested by his men in separate anti-narcotics operations in San Jose del Monte and Malolos cities and in Guiguinto municipality.
