Aside from a bounty of P50,000 cash, Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office (NOPPO) director SSupt Milko Lirazan ordered “shoot-to-kill” against the killer of SPO1 Edcel Villanueva, 40, of San Carlos City assigned at Calatrava PNP last February 26 in the evening.
Lirazan identified the suspect as Marcial Librando Garingo, “alias Tuloy” and one John Doe. They were charged with murder at San Carlos City Prosecutor’s office Thursday.
Garingo is a member of the organized group in Northern Negros Occidental, Lirazan added.
Lirazan considers Garingo and companion as “armed and dangerous.”
He said, the order was already confirmed by the higher PNP command and disseminated to respective police stations in the province.
The cash reward was offered by unidentified “concerned individual”.
Garingo has a pending warrant of arrest for illegal possession of firearm and murder of Senior Police Officer 1 Agustin Hulleza on November 16, 2013 in Barangay Palampas, San Carlos City.
Hulleza is assigned at Toboso PNP.
The killing of Villanueva has linked to illegal drugs just like Hulleza and two other policemen; PO1 Jan Gallenero, Jr., of La Carlota City and SPO4 Roger Cañete of Silay City
