PNP-8 nabs Gandara, Samar's wanted person
Tacloban City (June 25) -- Police Regional Office 8 Director Chief Superintendent Rey Laquihon Lanada informed that a wanted person by the name of Rex Pajarito alias Ricric, 19 years old, single, was nabbed at 7:00 o’clock in the morning of June 24 at Barangay Lungib, Gandara, Samar.
The apprehension was made by the combined elements of Gandara Municipal Police Station, the Regional Public Safety Battalion and Special Task Group 8 led by Police Inspector Jovie R. Espenido, by virtue of Alias Warrant of Arrest for the crime of murder docketed under Criminal Case Number 06-0342 with no bail bond; and serious physical injuries docketed under Criminal Case Number 6128, with bail bond of One Thousand Pesos, both issued by Presiding Judge Cesar T. Mabansag, Branch 41 in Gandara.
This fete is pursuant to Police Regional Office 8 Director Rey Laquihon Lanada’s directive to his men to intensify their drive against all forms of criminality to ensure the safety of the general public.
Director Lanada said that the Philippine National Police in the Region is working harder in its fights against lawless criminals. He, thus, gave a stern warning to the Wanted Persons who are still at large to turn in themselves because the hands of justice will sooner or later nab them.
Do not resist arrest, Director Lanada said, because his men will defend themselves.
"If poverty is the reason why they commit crimes, they could work. There is a lot of work to be had in the locality. There is dignity in labor for as long as it is legal. There is no need for them to commit crimes in order to gain something," Director Lanada added. (PIA 8/PNP RPCRD8) [top]
