PNP vows to eradicate crime gangs in Masbate



AROROY, Masbate– The Philippine National Police (PNP) Masbate provincial office on Thursday vowed to eradicate crime gangs in the province.

This is after joint operatives of the Aroroy Municipal Police Office, Masbate Provincial Public Safety Company and Masbate Provincial Intelligence Section raided the hideout of a notorious gang in this town at about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Supt. Carl Michael Car Reyes, PNP-Masbate provincial director, said the police operatives were armed with Search Warrant No. 2014-81 and coordinated with the local barangay officials.

He said the gang members engaged the raiding team in a fire exchange.

Reyes said that when the raiding operatives were about to enter the premises, they heard gunshots coming from inside the house, which were allegedly fired by more or less five gang members.

He said the group escaped in confusion and spread to the hinterlands in the boundary of Barangay Malubi and Barangay Pangle of this town after its members noticed that they were outnumbered by police forces.

No casualty was reported on the side of the raiding team while an undetermined number of casualties was noted on the gang's side.

The authorities recovered fired cartridges and slugs and one steel magazine of .45-caliber pistol loaded with seven live ammunition.

The suspected gang leader was identified in the search warrant as Richard Amican alias Toto.

Police record showed Amican was the alleged leader of the Arcavado-Amican group involved in a robbery-holdup and killing incidents in Aroroy town and neighboring municipalities, Reyes said.

He warned people involved in criminal activities that they are in close watch of them and that would they soon fall in the hands of authorities.

“Our message to people involved in criminal gangs is that we will use everything we can to stop their activity,” Reyes said.

The police official added that the intensified focused police operations against groups engaged in criminal activities in the province form part of their relentless campaign to control and eradicate crime. (Norman B. Tamar for PNA)
