A DETAINEE, who escaped while his mug shot is being taken, was rearrested in a pursuit operation in an east coast village of Zamboanga City.
Police Station 3 commander Senior Inspector Noel Lozano said Julius Gabil was rearrested several minutes after he escaped from his headquarters in Barangay Sangali.
Investigation showed that Gabil ran away around 8:20 a.m. Wednesday while his mug shot is being taken outside the detention of the Police Station 3.
Lozano said a pursuit operation was immediately launched and they managed to arrest Gabil at the residence of Jawiya Gunda at Purok 3, Sangali village.
He said Gunda was also invited for questioning for harboring Gabil.
Lozano, meanwhile, ordered his men to take the necessary precaution in dealing with detainees to prevent similar incident in the future. (Bong Garcia)
