3 kidnappers killed in Davao; businesswoman rescued   

 

Thursday, July 11, 2013

 

DAVAO CITY -- Three members of a kidnap-for-ransom group operating in
Metro Manila were killed, while one was captured after a shootout with
police around 11 a.m. Thursday (July 11) on C.M. Recto St., this city.


The identities of the suspects are yet to be confirmed, but they held
hostage Thursday Sally Chua, a 51-year-old businesswoman from Quezon
City. Chua was rescued by police authorities.


Davao City Police Office (DCPO) Director Ronald dela Rosa told
reporters that Chua was kidnapped last July 5 in Del Monte, Quezon City.
The victim was able to convince her kidnappers that the ransom money
could only be withdrawn in Davao City.


The suspects and the victim then agreed to make the payoff of P15
million in this city, as apparently the latter thought that the
criminals won't be able to escape if they make the transaction here.

 

The victim and her abductors, onboard three Mitsubishi Montero, left Manila on July 5 on their way to Davao City.

Around 11 a.m. Thursday, the suspects and the victim arrived here and
proceeded to an Allied Bank branch on C.M. Recto St. to make the
payoff.


The suspects, however, were cornered at the parking space of the said
bank. A shootout ensued between the kidnappers and the responding
Special Weapons and Tactics (Swat) teams and officers of the Philippine
Anti-Carnapping and Emergency Response (Pacer) Team from Manila and
DCPO.


Two suspects were killed inside a white Mitsubishi Montero SUV, while
one was rushed to the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) but
was declared dead on arrival by attending physicians.


The victim, meanwhile, was rescued by police officers inside the bank, while the suspect escorting the victim was arrested.


Recovered from the crime scene were assorted high-powered firearms
and handguns, assorted personal belongings, black wallet, a P1,0000
bill, a photocopy of official receipt and certificate of registration
Land Transportation Office (LTO), two Nokia mobile phones, one box of
mangosteen, one box of pomelo and a Philippine Airlines ticket booked
under the name of the victim.

 

But Dela Rosa said 10 other accomplices of the kidnappers managed to
escape before their operation onboard two other brand new white
Mitsubishi Montero SUVs with one having a plate number I-FBI-1238.

"Total lockdown karon ang Davao City. Nagpabutang na ko ug mobile
checkpoints sa exit points sa Davao City, (Davao City is in total
lockdown. We have placed mobile checkpoints in all exit points in Davao
City,)" Dela Rosa said.


Police Regional Office (PRO) Director Jaime Morente, who also
responded to the crime scene, said: "Naalert ko na din ang ating
kapulisan in the region na magconduct din ng checkpoint para makasiguro
na kung makalabas man sila ng Davao City, hindi sila makakalabas ng
Davao Region, (I have also alerted the police officers in the region to
conduct a checkpoint to make sure that if they manage to get out of
Davao City, they still won't be going out of Davao Region.)"


The victim is now under the custody of DCPO while the arrested suspect is undergoing interrogation. (Sun.Star Davao/Sunnex)

Very clever.

 

Lead your abductors to a place you know they will be shot on site - problem solved.

 

PS. I am, and always have been, a fan of capital punishment.

I'm guessing flying would be about impossible, must have taken 1 or more ferrys.

She was one very lucky lady she could have been killed and it looks like they are looking for 10 or 11 more men involved.  I fear for her and her family if they don't get them, payback could be brutal. 

 

It seems they drove down from Manila in three cars. 

 


 

Davao City police chief Ronald dela Rosa said they got wind of information that a payoff was going to happen at the Allied Bank Claveria branch here.


At least 14 kidnappers arrived at the bank in 3 SUVs while police forces positioned for the kill. The assault happened at 11:30 am, de la Rosa said.  Police managed to arrest only one kidnapper, while the rest were able to flee aboard two SUVs.
 

Local authorities were alerted that the kidnap-for-ransom group, which was holding captive Sally Chua, was in the city for the payoff.  The 51-year-old Chua was allegedly kidnapped in Quezon City last July 5.


The kidnappers initially demanded a P50-M ransom, which was eventually reduced to P15-M, police sources said. The money remained intact after the operation, they said, and Chua was not harmed.

Either the victim must be one hell of  a good talker or the gang was just too stupid

 

She deserves a job in national security

Or some of the gang are Luzon cops or have inside contacts.  Smart lady that is why she was successful in business.
