• Ex-Army man, wanted for cop killing, nabbed in Batangas


    A FORMER member of the Army Scout Rangers, who is “involved” in the killing of a police officer 14 years ago, was captured by a combined Police and Army unit on Christmas eve in Lipa City, Batangas. Director Benjamin Magalong of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) identified the suspect as Ruben Delavin Jr. alias “Goyong”. Magalong said Delavin was arrested by members of the CIDG, the Police Special Action Force (SAF) and the Army. Magalong added that the suspect was a security escort of former San Jacinto Mayor Isidro Altiche in Masbate and was involved in the killing of PO3 Johnston Nanteza Espargaso sometime on November 2000. The Regional Trial Court Branch 50 in San Jacinto, Masbate earlier issued a warrant of arrest against Delavin for murder, frustrated murder and attempted murder. Delavin is also reportedly listed as one of the Most Wanted Persons in the Bicol Region and has a P250, 000 bounty on his head.
