Police continue to look for remnants of Babye Kidnap Group
DAVAO CITY, July 14 (PIA) — The search is still on for the 10 individuals behind the abduction of a Quezon City businesswoman after they eluded arrest following the foiled kidnap-for-ransom-pay-off Thursday (July 11) at a bank along C.M. Recto, according to Senior Superintendent Ronald de la Rosa, director of the Davao City Police Office.
He told reporters, members of the local police continue to look for the perpetrators in the possible areas in the city where they might be hiding.
De la Rosa said the remaining perpetrators whom he tagged as belonging to Babye kidnap-for-ransom group comprise of two women and eight men who escaped riding in two white sports utility vehicles, after learning the fate of their four comrades wherein one was arrested and three others were killed in a shootout with authorities.
He said he is not also discounting the possibility that the other perpetrators have eventually left the city.
“We appeal to the public to report to us two Montero SUVs (Sports Utility Vehicle) which carry one female and four males in every vehicle. They might still be here in the city,” he said.
De la Rosa said the victim Sally Chua 51, a businesswoman from Quezon City and one of his abductors were already sent to national headquarters of the Philippine National Police in Camp Crame Thursday night for further investigation.
He observed the perpetrators were very confident that Sally Chua’s family did not coordinate with authorities as they held the victim since July 5.
De la Rosa recalled the perpetrators brought along the victim on a land-trip from Quezon City to Davao City where the supposed pay-off would be made.
He said police operatives were about to arrest the three remaining abductors in the car when they opened fire, prompting the police to return fire.
De la Rosa believed the perpetrators belong to an organized crime group as shown by their armaments, type of vehicles and parking style which he described as combat mode.
“They positioned their car in the manner that they could easily get away,” he said.
De la Rosa said they are still on the process of identifying the three perpetrators killed in the shootout. (Joey Dalumpines PIA-XI)
