THREE men will spend Christmas and the coming New Year in jail after they were arrested by agents of the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group on separate felonies last Monday and Tuesday, PNP-CIDG director Chief Supt. Victor P. Deona said yesterday.
Deona said two of the suspects, identified as Ferdinand de la Torre alias ‘Sonny,’ 50, driver, and Melandro Paigma, alias ‘Mags,’ 32, both of Bgy. Poblacion in Narra, Palawan, were arrested for attempted murder inside the Narra public market last Monday afternoon.
The official said operatives of the CIDG Palawan and the local police under the supervision of Supt. Zacarias Noel Villegas arrested the two on the strength of a warrant for attempted murder issued by Judge Ambrocio de Luna of the Puerto Princesa City Regional Trial Court Branch 51.
The two are now being held at the local CIDG detention facility.
Last Tuesday, CIDG Region 2 operatives arrested Christian Marlowee Agcaoili, 34, of Bgy. 1, San Mateo, Isabela, who is the subject of a warrant for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 issued by Judge Reymundo Aumentado of the Cauayan, Isabela RTC Branch 20, said CIDG regional chief Senior Supt. Froilan Perez.
The suspect was detained at the CIDG jail in Isabela.
