LEGAZPI CITY --- A rape suspect who was tagged by the Police Regional Office–Bicol (PRO5) as the No. 4 most wanted person in the six-province region has been arrested in Sorsogon.

In a report on Thursday, PRO5 spokesperson Lt. Col. Malu Calubaquib said “Ron”, 42, was located and arrested through a warrant of arrest in Sorsogon City on Wednesday.

“The accused is implicated with six counts of rape, with no bail recommended. After the arrest, the suspect was taken to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Sorsogon Provincial Field Unit for proper disposition,” Calubaquib said.

Meanwhile, a Pasig City resident was arrested for drug trafficking during an entrapment operation in Barangay Concepcion Pequeña, Naga City on Wednesday.

Calubaquib said the suspect identified as “Sarang” was arrested after selling 300 grams of shabu worth PHP2 million to a police undercover agent.

“He was promptly arrested upon confirmation that he was engaged in the sale of illegal drugs to the police poseur buyer. Documentation and marking of evidence were conducted at the crime scene in the presence of required witnesses. He was transported to Police Station 2, Naga City Police Office for proper processing,” she said.

Calubaquib added a comprehensive investigation is currently underway to trace and identify the source of the illegal drug supply circulating within the region.

Brig. Gen. Andre Dizon, PRO5 regional director, commended the team’s exceptional efforts in combating illegal drugs and underscored the importance of continuity in such operations.

He also reassured the public of their commitment to sustain the campaign against illegal drugs. (PNA)
