Armed with Warrant of Arrest, joint elements of the CIDG Ilocos Norte Field Unit and local police arrested Ilocos Norte’s No 1. Most Wanted Person on Tuesday (April 26, 2022) morning in Brgy. Suba, Paoay, Ilocos Norte.
The suspect, identified as JANCEN VALENCIA PASION is wanted for five (5) counts of RAPE in the said warrant issued by Hon. Dinah Myrtle Morales Pacquing, the Presiding Judge of RTC, First Judicial Region, Branch 11, Laoag City, Ilocos Norte.
The detectives revealed that they were unsuccessful on their first try of serving the warrant however, through their continuous monitoring, surveillance, and discreet interview with the neighborhood, they finally acquired the information that Pasion was working as a backhoe operator and is presently residing in the nearby town.
In the complaint lodged by the victim’s parents, Pasion committed his carnal act towards his own cousin who was then 15 years old since 2020 until she got pregnant. The parents started probing when they noticed the changes in the victim’s body. With immense shock and disbelief, the parents immediately reported the incident to the local police and formally lodged criminal complaints against the accused.
The persistence of the operatives of CIDG with the assistance of other law enforcement unit and the community aided the anti-criminality campaign of the Group that resulted in the successful arrest of the suspect.
