Carnapper slain, 2 others arrested in Davao

By Anthony S. Allada

A suspected big-time carnapper was killed when he allegedly shot it with policemen trying to arrest him Sunday night at Catalunan Grande, this city.

Sr. Supt. Ronald dela Rosa, chief of the Davao City Police Office, identified the suspect as Jun Cunanan alias Jun Sese, 51, a resident of Malita, Davao del Sur.

Dela Rosa said that Cunanan who was reportedly using a fictitious name as Chuck Castro Reyes in his identification card has been long wanted for murder and carnapping with warrant of arrest issued by the Regional Trial Court Branch 17.

He said at around 7 p.m. Sunday, joint elements of the Highway Patrol Group 11 led by Insp. Pedro Campomanes, Special Anti-Terrorist Unit (SATU) led by Insp. Randy Sambalod and Investigation Division Management Branch (IDMB) spotted Cunanan to be riding a black Mitsubishi Strada with plate number NOS-584 going to Skyline, Catalunan Grande.

Policemen flagged down the vehicle but it evaded and tried to flee away, prompting them to chase the fleeing car and was cornered at Crossing Santiago Village and Sitio Ubat in Elenita Heights Subdivision.

Cunanan allegedly opened the front seat door and started firing at the chasing policemen who immediately returned fire, hitting him on the different parts of his body that caused his instant death.

His companions — driver Teofani delos Reyes Jr., of Cantones Residence, Purok 13, San Miguel, Tagum City and bodyguard, Reynaldo Languido, 49, a member of the Civilian Armed Forces Geographical Unit (Cafgu), of Culo St., Poblacion, Malita, Davao del Sur – also resisted arrest but were later neutralized and arrested.

Recovered from the crime scene were three .45 caliber pistols and three .38 caliber revolvers with several ammunitions and two handheld radios.

The recovered vehicle’s certificate of registration bore the name of former Davao del Sur Governor Claude Bautista to be its owner.

Cunanan’s cadaver was later brought to Collado Funeral Parlor in the nearby Barangay Bangkal by responding elements of the Scene of the Crime Operation (Soco). (ASA)
