ANGELES City -- Through the efforts of the military intelligence service and the city police here, the
woman believed to have raked in hundreds of millions of pesos in illegal recruitment finally fell into
the long arms of the law.

Chief Insp. Aries Gonzales, commander of Police Station 4, identified the suspect as Queen
Ashley Ablan, of legal age, who was arrested by virtue of a warrant for estafa issued by Judge Rafael
Hipolito of Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 215 with no bail recommended.
    
Gonzales said police officers and the Army’s intelligence group led by T/Sgt. Claudio Dumlao
Jr. arrested the suspect at Room 702 of Kay Hotel in Bgy. Malabanias, the other day.
    
It was learned that Ablan’s co-accused in the estafa case has been arrested earlier in Quezon
City.
    
Meanwhile, a 37-year-old man was arrested at the main gate of Clark Freeport Zone the other
day for violation of the 15-day gun ban related to the holding of the Association of Southeast Asian
Nation (Asean) Summit.
    
Gonzales identified the suspect as Laurence Anthony Vicedo, of Bgy. Pandan, this city. Found
inside the Mitsubishi Montero he was driving were an Armscor M911 cal. .45 pistol, four magazines and
33 live ammunition.
    
The suspect presented a permit-to-carry and license of the gun but police officers had told
him that his documents were not valid during the gun ban period.
    
Charges for violation of the gun ban were filed against the suspect who is still detained at
Police Station 4 as of press time.
