BACOLOD City – S/Supt. Ricardo Dela Paz, Bacolod City Police Office director, confirmed that one of the suspects in the robbery-holdup of the Central Negros Electric Cooperative in March this year was arrested in Cagayan de Oro last week.

De la Paz revealed to The Daily Guardian here that the police chief of Cagayan de Oro, S/Supt.  Gerardo Rosales, has informed him that Gerardo Saniel alias Gagang was arrested by CDO policemen while undergoing treatment for a gunshot wound at Sabal Hospital in the said city.

Dela Paz said that Saniel is a member of the Alferez-Ozamiz organized crime group which was pinpointed by the local police here as responsible for carting away P3.9 million in cash from Ceneco.

Dela Paz said that Saniel figured in a shootout with CDO policemen who were responding to a robbery of a pawnshop in Butuan City.

Another suspect, a companion of Saniel, identified as a certain Felix Garcia was also arrested.

Dela Paz said communication and coordination is being made between BCPO and CDO police for the transport of Saniel to Bacolod where he has a standing warrant of arrest for robbery-in-band.

Dela Paz said the arrest of Saniel is a serious blow to the crime group.
