BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

A former leader of the defunct Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade managed to elude arrest during a raid at his residence on June 28 in Brgy. Sag-ang, La Castellana, Negros Occidental.

The subject of joint operations of the Regional Intelligence Division 6, 2nd Provincial Mobile Force Company, La Castellana and Bago City Police Station, as well as Regional Mobile Force Battalion 6, was Ramonito Osano, who once served as leader of the NPA and RPA-ABB.

Osano, who has pending arrest warrants for attempted homicide, frustrated murder and murder, however managed to escape after reportedly trading shots with policemen.

The police recovered a .45 caliber pistol with a magazine containing seven ammunition and a hand grenade at the place of Osano.

Osano was denied bail by Judge Mary Jennifer Protasio-Arches for murder charges.

A buy-bust operation conducted by operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group at Hda. Puyas 1 in Brgy. Bagtic, Silay City, also led to the apprehension of Adolfo Montebano, 36, of Brgy 2, Victorias City.

The arrest of Montebano yielded a Colt caliber .45 pistol with a magazine containing two ammunition and P100 in marked money.*
