Suspect in frustrated homicide surrenders in San Jose

SAN JOSE, CAMARINES SUR—Members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) here have intensified their campaign against persons with pending criminal charges.

This is in compliance with the directive issued by PNP Bicol Regional Director P/Chief Supt. Victor Deona a few months ago.

It will be recalled that Deona instructed his field personnel to submit a monthly report that clearly indicates the accomplishments of every police station.

Included in the latest report is the arrest of Joseph Pacum, 42 years old, a member of the 42nd Infantry Division of the Philippine Army based in Tigaon, Camarines Sur.

Pacum is facing a criminal charge for frustrated murder. Said charge is now pending with the Regional Trial Court here.

He told the police that upon learning that a warrant of arrest was issued against him, he decided to submit himself to the authorities.

Hon. Maria Acompanado, Presiding Judge of RTC Branch 38 recommended a bail amounting to P200,000 for the temporary liberty of the accused.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
