NATIONAL Capital Region Police Office director Major General Edgar Alan O. Okubo yesterday said a notorious 42-year old female illegal recruiter in the country was arrested during a manhunt operation in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.

The official identified the accused as Catherine Sioson, the subject of nine pending warrants of arrest for syndicated illegal recruitment. No bail was recommended for the temporary liberty of the suspect who was arrested last Friday, he added.

According to Maj. Gen. Okubo, officers from the NCRPO Regional Intelligence Division/Anti-Carnapping Task Group tracked down the suspect with the help of an informant.

The official said that Sioson was first arrested on the strength of a non-bailable warrant for arrest for syndicated illegal recruitment issued by Judge Ariel Palce of the Cauayan City Regional Trial Court Branch 40 on January 15, 2019.

However, she was found to be the subject of several other warrants of arrest when her records were checked by the NCRPO-RID thru the enhanced Philippine National Police E-Warrant System.

“Team NCRPO will continue to intensify our police operations to bring more wanted persons to justice. This venture serves as proof of the PNP’s commitment to uphold the law and keep the streets safe,” said Maj. Gen. Okubo as he commended the NRPO-RID agents who arrested the elusive suspect.
