Police arrests San Juan's seventh most wanted man
A man tagged by police as the seventh most wanted man in San Juan City for alleged involvement in numerous “akyat-bahay” incidents was arrested in Antipolo City on Thursday.
Police Col. Ariel Fulo, San Juan City Police chief, identified the suspect as Ricardo Lianza, 23.
Armed with an arrest warrant, members of the Station Warrant and Subpoena Section nabbed Lianza at his safehouse in Barangay San Jose, Antipolo City around 11 p.m.
Fulo said the suspect is listed as the seventh most wanted person in the city for his alleged involvement in various robbery “akyat-bahay” incidents, targeting multiple unattended houses in some subdivisions in the city.
The suspect, together with a minor cohort, robbed a house of a Filipino-Chinese in Barangay Pasadena, San Juan City in 2018, police said.
The minor was apprehended months after the incident, while Lianza escaped and went into hiding.
Lianza’s arrest came after police received a tip from an informant that he was hiding with his relatives in Antipolo City, the police chief said.
Judge Ferdinand T. Rafanan of San Juan City Regional Trial Court Branch 264 issued the warrant for robbery against Lianza.
The suspect is now detained at San Juan City Police Custodial facility.
