San Andres' No. 3 most wanted falls

A team from the San Andres municipal police office arrested last week a 25-year old woman wanted by the court for robbery.

The team, composed of SPO4 Noe Suaviso, SPO3 Ernesto Torrecampo, SPO2 Jorge Matienzo, SPO1 Abel Suaviso and SPO1 Salvador Aldave, Jr. went out at 6 A.M. of December 4 and proceeded to barangay Bislig, where they collared Marites Bitome, 25, single.

Reports say Bitome, who occupies No. 3 in the town's most wanted list, faces a charge of robbery under Criminal Case 3625. The reports did not state the circumstances of the complaint filed against her.

In related developments, a man who was among those allegedly caught using shabu during a police raid inside the house of former Virac Mayor Jorge S. Arcilla is now in jail pending his submission of a P60,000 bail bond.

A team composed of SPO1 Roger Masagca, SPO1 Manuel Joson, SPO1 Noel Sunga and PO2 Lino Obias apprehended Rafael Regalado y de la Cruz last Dec. 6 in barangay Francia where he was served with the warrant of arrest issued by the Municipal Trial Court in connection with Criminal Case 5282 for violation of Republic Act 6425.

Regalado was with the late mayor's granddaughter, Liza Urbano y Arcilla, and four other men when they were surprised by an 11-man raiding team led by Virac deputy chief of police Insp. Rosita R. Vargas two months ago. Also seized during the raid were nine plastic sachets containing white powder believed to be methampetamine hydrochloride as well as sniffing paraphernalia and some materials used for weighing shabu.
