CAMP BGEN OSCAR M FLORENDO — The Region 1 police formed Special Investigation Task Group (SITG) “Dela Cruz” to conduct an in-depth investigation of a shooting incident that led to the death of the village chief of Barangay Mestizo, San Carlos City, Pangasinan last October 20.

A report reaching the Police Regional Office 1 (PRO1) headquarters disclosed that the victim, identified as Abraham dela Cruz, a resident and Acting Barangay Captain of said place, was on his way home when unidentified suspects riding in tandem aboard a motorcycle shot him near his house at about 10 o’clock in the morning.

The suspects escaped after the incident, passing the barangays of San Juan, Baldog, Talang and Aponit, all in San Carlos City.

A hot pursuit operation was conducted following information that a certain Ramon Yanes, a Barangay Kagawad of Barangay Balaoac of said city, was one of the assailants. When approached by police officers to be invited for questioning, Yanes was found to be in possession of a caliber .45 pistol. Failing to present any document to legally possess said firearm, Yanes was put under arrest.

Also confiscated from Yanes along with the caliber .45 pistol were seven (7) live ammunition, two (2) magazines with seven (7) live ammunition, nine (9) live ammunition for M14 rifle, a camouflage pouch and a camouflage jacket.

Yanes, who denied participation in the killing, was subjected to paraffin testing and the confiscated firearm was also subjected to ballistics examination and cross-matching. He will be included in a police line-up for possible identification by witnesses.

Records show that Yanes has been the subject of several operations and investigation for his alleged involvement in gun-for-hire activities.

A case for violation of Republic Act 8294 is being readied against Yanes for illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.
