Sunday, September 8, 2013
THREE persons, including one implicated in series of shooting incidents, were arrested while one escaped in separate buy-bust operations in Zamboanga City, the police reported.
Arrested were Musa Jailani, his son Jefrey, and Sophia Hassan, 20. Bars Hamja, eluded arrest, the police said.
Police Station 6 Chief Inspector Elmer Acuña said the Jailanis were nabbed around 9:20 p.m. Thursday in a buy-bust operation in Sitio Hawaii, Talon-Talon village after they handed over two sachets of suspected shabu to an undercover policeman in exchange for P500.
Acuña said that Musa has been implicated in the series of shooting incidents in Barangay Talon-Talon and in nearby Mampang.
Hassan, on the other hand, was nabbed around 8 p.m. Saturday at Purok 5, Barangay Recodo, said Police Station 9 commander Senior Inspector Edilberto Alvarez.
Hassan’s cohort, Hamja, managed to elude arrest by jumping over a fence and running away upon sensing it was a buy-bust operation.
The suspects have been detained while appropriate charges are being readied against them, the police said. (Bong Garcia)
