The Lambat-Sibat One Time, Big Time Operations Group of the Palawan Provincial Police Office has arrested seven most wanted persons, Monday, November 16.
Six of the suspects are in the list of top 10 “most wanted” persons in the province while one is in the municipal wanted list.
Three of them were arrested in Taytay town. They are Antonio Arizala Jr. who is charged of robbery; Bobong Reyes (qualified theft) and Victor Solina (attempted homicide).
Other suspects are Francisco B. Angustia who was arrested in Narra and is charged of theft; William Ramos of Quezon town (frustrated murder); Jojet Limco Magbanua (child abuse), and Francisco Piojo (theft).
The successful manhunt operation called Manhunt Charlie and Lambat-Sibat have slowly emptied the list of “most wanted” persons of the Provincial PNP.
Police Superintendent Vicente Cabatingan, of Palawan Provincial Intelligence Branch said that minors who committed several crimes are included in their operations. He said that if minors continue to do the crime it will lead to severe offenses later on.
According to Police Senior Superintendent Benjamin Acorda, Director of PPPO, the intensified campaign of the Provincial PNP against the most want persons is in line with the program of the national government in crime reduction.
“Dalawa ang klase ng operasyon natin para sa panghuhuli ng mga Most Wanted Persons, ito ay ang Manhunt Charlie kung saan ay target dito ang mga top wanted persons na may mga mabibigat at walang pyansang kaso at itong Lambat-Sibat one time big time operations. Hinuhuli dito ang mga repeat offenders, medyo minor ang kaso at may pyansa ang mga ito,” Col. Acorda said.
