MANILA — A murder suspect in the killing of two persons in Gate 5 Parola compound who eluded arrest for more than two years was finally arrested by operatives of the MPD-PS 12 last Tuesday in Cebu City.
The arrest was made on the strength of a warrant against Ivan Abel Candelario, 18 years old, painter and native of Purok Sunshine, Bgy. Lataban, Liloan Cebu city.
The arrest warrant was issued by Judge Lorenzo De La Rosa RTC Branch 4 for the crime of murder following a shooting incident on March 6, 2018 at Gate 5 area Parola compound Tondo Manila.
Police records show the incident happened at around 1:40 a.m. Two victims were killed in that fateful incident. They were Angelito Bernales and Gerald L. Dagale.
It was learned that the suspect eluded arrest as he was still 15 years old when the crime was committed. He was arrested as he is now above 18 years of age.
Candelaria was listed among the Top 5 of PS 12 MPD Wanted list for the crime of murder committed two years and 8 months ago. (AI/MTVN)
