ONE of the most wanted persons (MWPs) in Southern Mindanao was arrested by the local police during a manhunt operation in Davao City last Tuesday, a report to Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief General Rodolfo S. Azurin Jr. said.

The suspect was arrested by officers who found him in his hiding place in Marilog, Davao City, on the strength of a warrant for attempted murder, said Police Regional Office 11 (PRO11) Director Brig. Gen. Benjamin H. Silo Jr.

“This is part of our ongoing intensified effort to account for all wanted persons in Southern Mindanao, specifically those with warrants of arrest for their involvement in major crimes,” the PRO11 director reported to Azurin.

The PNP chief commended the PRO11 for their latest accomplishment in their campaign against wanted criminals.

“We want to maintain peace and order, essential to our thrust that includes “Kaayusan” in our communities. And the way to achieve this is to display our active approach to run against criminals and prevent their cohorts from further operating and causing harm to the community,” said Azurin.
