Caloocan fugitive falls in Pasay
A fugitive with pending multiple cases including robbery-homicide and rape has finally been arrested by operatives of the Southern Police District (SPD) in Pasay City.
Reports from the SPD on Wednesday said the suspect, identified as Albert Biol, 43, also known as “Daniel Mercado Morres,” was arrested on Tuesday along 19th corner 4th streets in Barangay 183.
According to police, Biol was previously arrested in December 2014 for robbery-homicide and two other counts of robbery. He was also wanted for car theft and illegal possession of firearms. All of the cases were committed in Caloocan City, police said.
Biol escaped from the Caloocan City Jail on February 11, 2018 by crawling through the ceiling of his isolation cell.
Police added that Biol also has a pending arrest order released in April 2018, for a case of forcible abduction with rape. Three other counts of rape were filed against him in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan; six counts of rape in Caloocan City; a complaint for attempted rape; frustrated homicide and car theft.
Biol was arrested by joint operatives from the Special Operations Unit of the Northern Police District (NPD) and the Highway Patrol Group who were armed with a warrant issued by Caloocan City Regional Trial Court Branch 128 Presiding Judge Eleonor Kwong.
Prior to his arrest, the SPD’s District Intelligence Unit received reports that the Biol was sighted in the area, prompting various police units to deploy informants to positively identify him. He is now under the custody of the NPD. /muf
