CAMP OLIVAS, City of San Fernando, Pampanga — A 43-year-old man wanted for murder and listed as most wanted person in Camarines Sur was arrested on Wednesday in Arayat, Pampanga,, ending his more than two decades of hiding.

Police Regional Office director Brig. Gen. Jose Hidalgo Jr. identified the arrested suspect as Leo Villamor, of Bgy. Telapayong, Arayat, Pampanga.

Villamor was nabbed by joint operatives of the Arayat Municipal Police Statio, 303rd Mobile Company Regional Mobile Force Battalion 3, and the Siruma Municipal Police Station of the Camarines Sur Police Provincial Office at his residence.

The suspect has a standing warrant of arrest for murder issued by the Regional Trial Court Branch 63 of Calabanga, Camarines Sur dated January 16, 2002, with no bail recommended.

Villamor went into hiding for more than 21 years prior to his arrest in Pampanga.

“The successful arrest of Villamor is a result of intel-driven operations and diligent efforts to place lawless elements behind the bars of justice, which is in line with PNP chief Gen. Benjamin Acorda’s directive,” Hidalgo said.
