Razalan commended the tracker team members for their accomplishments.

"The dedication of all personnel involved in this operation is truly commendable. This arrest exemplifies their unwavering commitment to securing justice for the victims and their families. I also thank the Ilonggos for their unwavering support in our campaign against wanted persons. Your contributions are instrumental in our successes," Razalan said. (Leo Solinap)
