Wednesday, March 6, 2013
JOINT operatives of the Baguio City Police Office’s Intelligence Unit and the City Public Safety Company successfully arrested Sonny “Akil” Taher in his residence at Pinewood, Crystal Cave last March 1.
The arrest warrant issued by RTC Judge Antonio Reyes in violation of RA 9165 or possession of dangerous drugs, and set without bail resulted in the successful arrest of the accused.
Taher, who hails from Marawi City, had been the subject of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-CAR’s list of drug personalities and is listed as the fourth priority target list.
The accused has also been the subject of a manhunt after he posted bail from a previous buy bust operation on April 2012 before the issuance of his warrant of arrest and had been in hiding ever since while continuing his illegal activities.
