P500K bounty offered for killer of Pangasinan village chief
DAGUPAN CITY, Pangasinan — Alaminos City Mayor Arthur Celeste on Thursday (Oct. 27) offered P500,000 for information that would lead to the killer of Barangay (village) Bued chairman Salvador Camba, who was shot dead on Wednesday night (Oct. 26).
Camba, owner of a shop that builds speedboats, was attacked at 8:15 p.m. as he walked home.
Supt. Benjamin Areola, Alaminos police chief, said Camba was shot nine times (not 12 as earlier reported).
Senior Supt. Oliver Lee said Camba’s family rushed him to the Western Pangasinan District Hospital but he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The body was taken to a chapel at the town church because Camba’s family was afraid to hold the wake at their house.
Camba was not on the police drug watchlist and was said to be active in the campaign against illegal narcotics.
Aside from the speedboat business, Camba was engaged in enterprises dealing in salt-making, aquaculture, milkfish hatchery, and hog-raising. SFM/rga
