Metro Manila police chief Maj. Gen. Felipe Natividad has lauded the Marikina police for conducting incessant follow up operations that led to the arrest of suspects in a robbery-homicide incident.

The suspects were nabbed in connection with the killing of John Paul Esguerra, whose body was found in Marikina on June 16.

The suspects were traced after they sent text messages to Esguerra’s sister demanding money in exchange for information about his whereabouts.

They provided two Gcash numbers for the receipt of the money, which the Marikina police used to look for the suspects.

They identified Enrico Chavez Jr. as the person who demanded money and subsequently arrested him.

Chavez then identified the individuals who robbed and killed Esguerra.

The Marikina police continued to conduct follow up operations and arrested John Carlo Barrameda and Lea National Ros at the shop where Esguerrea’s bike was found.

Another suspect, Mark Joshua Noay, surrendered to the police.

The suspects were brought to the Marikina City Police Station for documentation and proper disposition.

They are facing complaints of robbery with homicide, extortion, and violation of the anti-fencing law.

Natividad said the actions of the Marikina police were commendable, and warned wrongdoers that the police would go after them no matter what crime they committed.

“Makikita natin na ang pagpupursigi upang bawat suspects ay mahuli at masampahan ng karampatang reklamo. Magsilbi sana itong babala sa iba pang nagbabalak na gumawa ng ganitong klase ng krimen na kahit ang simpleng pagbili ng mga nakaw na gamit ay may karampatang parusa,” he said.
