Man arrested after jumping bail

LAW ENFORCERS arrested a man inside his house in Purok Mangahan, Barangay 76-A, Bucana on Sunday two years after he jumped bail.

Members of the San Pedro Police Precinct and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested Rey Ababa who escaped after posting about P280,000 for two cases involving illegal drugs and a case involving firearm possession.

Ababa posted the bonds for violations of sections 11 and 12 of Republic Act 9165, the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, and for violation of Republic Act 10591, Comprehensive Law on Firearms and Ammunition.

Issuing the warrants of arrest on the illegal drugs cases were former Regional Trial Court judge Pelagio S. Paguican and the warrant of arrest on the other case was Executive Judge Emmanuel Carpio of RTC Branch 16.

Based on records, Ababa went into hiding for about two years after he was arrested inside his house where he was allegedly caught using illegal drugs. He also allegedly yielded a gun during his arrest.
