Authorities identified the suspect as Jasper Delos Angeles, 30 a resident of Sitio Dipulao, Barangay Poblacion 6, Coron.
P/Maj. Thirz Starky Timbancaya, chief of the Coron police, said they coordinated with the Manila Police District (MPD) and the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) intelligence unit led by P/Maj. Rosalino Ibay Jr. to find and arrest the suspect.
