Crime syndicate member falls

GOVERNMENT troops arrested a suspected member of a crime syndicate in Lanao del Norte after a law enforcement operation, a military official said Saturday.

The suspect was identified as Roger Sagarino, an alleged hired killer and dealer of illegal drugs. He was on Thursday, March 1, at 11:45 a.m. in Barangay Raw-an, Lala, Lanao del Norte.

Brigadier General Roseller Murillo, Army’s 1st Infantry Division commander, said Sagarino was also involved in numerous robbery cases.

The suspect, like his brother, Charly, has ties with the Kuratong Baleleng gang, an organized crime syndicate involved in a variety of illegal activities, including robbery, smuggling, kidnapping, murder, extortion, drugs and illegal gambling, the official added.

He said Charly is currently detained at the municipal jail of Dumingag, Zamboanga del Sur. While Sagarino was taken to Lala Municipal Police Station for appropriate action. (Bong Garcia/SunStar Philippines)
