Bounty for Bicol gang leader raised to P3.5-M
This was confirmed to BICOL STANDARD by Police Chief Inspector Arthur Ramirez Gomez, Spokesperson of Albay Provincial Police Office.
Gomez said that originally, the Police Regional Office 5 recommended P2.5-million as reward money for the immediate arrest of Gilbert Concepcion.
Salceda and the Morales family each gave P500,000, increasing the bounty raised by Camp Crame to P3.5-million.
Gilbert Concepcion, it would be recalled, is the suspect in the assassination of former Makati City Engr. and United Nationalist Alliance chairman Nelson Morales.
He is likewise allegedly involved in other high-profile crimes, including the killing of former Libon, Albay Deputy Chief of Police Senior Inspector Joerem Kallos who tried to serve Concepcion a warrant of arrest on December 29, 2015.
In a related development, the Philippine National Police denied reports that Gilbert Concepcion is involved in the recent killing of his father Ramon Concepcion in Molosbolos, Libon town.
