MANILA, Aug. 20 – Police Regional Office-4A (CALABARZON-PRO) director Chief Supt. Nicanor Bartolome has commended the Laguna Provincial Police Office (PPO) for the neutralization of the notorious LLagas robbery-hold-up gang following the killing of its leader and five members in Binan City Wednesday.

Bartolome, at the same time, directed Laguna PPO director Senior Supt. Gilbert Cruz to continue his intensified campaign against criminality in the province.

The CALABARZON police chief stressed authorities should not lower their guards against crime groups even after the neutralization of the notorious gang tagged in the string of robbery and hold-up cases in Laguna and adjacent provinces.

On Wednesday night, elements of the Binan City Police Station were informed about an ongoing heist being staged by six members of the LLagas gang in Barangay San Antonio against passengers of a passenger jeepney.

Cruz said patrolling policemen immediately responded to the scene but they were evaded by the suspects, led by Joey LLagas, prompting the policemen to give a chase.

The suspects were eventually cornered inside the Ireneville Subdivision in Barangay San Francisco.

Instead of yielding to the lawmen, the suspects fired at the policemen, wounding PO1 Webster Ortiz. An intense firefight ensued, resulting in the killing of the six suspects, including Llagas.

Only two other suspects were identified, they were Severino Abotok and Jaime Segundo Jr. The three other suspects remained unidentified.

Recovered from the suspects were two caliber .38 revolvers, one shotgun, one caliber .22 revolver, one caliber .22 pistol, one hand grenade and several live ammunition of different calibers. (PNA)
