Bustamande identified the suspects as Aron Constatntino Gallo of Caloocan and Ruel Cadang of Paete Laguna.

MANILA, Philippines—Soon, the faces of the now top four fugitives in the country – Ruben Ecleo Jr., Reyes brothers, and Jovito Palparan – will be splashed on Facebook and Twitter.
Following the ‎proposal of Senate Pro Tempore Ralph Recto to upload profiles and pictures of the country’s most wanted persons, the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group said Thursday that it would heed to the Senator’s call.
‎Last March 22, Recto proposed the creation of a Facebook account showing the list of the country’s most wanted criminals, including their mug shots‎.
‎”It’s not just Facebook, there’s also Twitter. If we can Instagram the mug shots of wanted persons, the better.  We can also post in YouTube the footage of their capers which have been caught on cam,” Recto said in a statement.

Chief Superintendent Benjamin Magalong, CIDG chief, told reporters that he fully supports the online posting of the rogue’s gallery as it would reach more people.
“We should maximize the use of social media, especially now that we are intensifying our efforts in hunting down the top five fugitives,” Magalong said.
He said the CIDG Public Information Office has already taken the first step in implementing the proposal.
“The CIDG PIO is starting to set up our Facebook and Twitter accounts,” he added.
Despite the possible surge of informants once the CIDG publicizes the list of wanted persons, Magalong assured that the reward system still stands.

‎The Senator also urged law enforcement agencies the National Bureau of Investigation, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to start utilizing the social media as a tool in informing the people of the identities of fugitives from the law.
