Suspected NPA hit man nabbed in Laguna
CAMP PACIANO RIZAL, Laguna, Philippines —A suspected member of the New People’s Army (NPA), who was tagged in the ambush of a police official in Bicol nearly three years ago, was arrested in San Pedro, Laguna Thursday noon.
Allan Serrano, alias “Ka Bunso” 31, was arrested by joint members of the San Pedro and Albay police in Barangay San Antonio at around 1 p.m., according to Senior Superintendent Gilbert Cruz, Laguna police director, in a text message.
Superintendent Kirby Kraft, San Pedro police chief, said they received reports that Serrano had been working as a tricycle driver in San Pedro.
The police said Serrano, an alleged member of the provincial committee of the communist NPA in Albay, was tagged in the murder of Superintendent Gregorio Guarin.
Guarin was acting administrative chief of the regional police in the Bicol region when he was gunned down in Barangay Tula-tula in Legazpi, Albay on May 2, 2009.
