9 out of 10 Pasay jailbreakers now rearrested —police

Nine of the 10 detainees who broke out of Malibay Detention Facility in Pasay City on Monday have been rearrested, the Southern Police District (SPD) said Tuesday.

In an update, the SPD said another detainee, Norman Deyta, was rearrested by the Pasay City Police in Barangay 152 at around 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

Recovered from him was the service firearm, a 9mm Beretta with one magazine assembly with eight live ammunition, that he allegedly took from the jailer during their escape.

According to Pasay City Police chief Police Colonel Froilan Uy, Deyta led the jailbreak. He added that Deyta was also the current "mayor" of the detainees.

Uy earlier said they are suspecting that Deyta kept the jailer’s gun.

The police are now looking for one more detainee named Richard dela Cruz, who is facing a case for violation of  the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

Earlier, the police said a P100,000 reward is being offered for each of the escaped persons under police custody (PUPCs).

So far, the rearrested detainess are:


  1. Joey Hernandez
  2. Eden Garcia
  3. Tirzo Galit
  4. Joshua Panganiban
  5. Christian Salvatierra
  6. John Michael Cabe
  7. Romeo Estopa y Marasigan
  8. Carlo Magno Benavidez y Legaspi
  9. Norman Deyta

The detainees escaped from the detention facility in Barangay 152 early Monday morning.

They managed to break the iron bar of the main facility at around 4:30 a.m. then mauled the duty jailer and took his service firearm, cash, and jail keys.

Uy said the jail guard was now in good condition although he had to undergo inquest for evasion by neglect due to the incident.

Malibay Police Sub-Station Commander Police Major Jerry Sunga and his deputy, meanwhile, have been relieved from their posts.

Following the incident, the detainees in Malibay were transferred to different detention facilities with more secure and better structures, Uy said.

Uy also ordered their investigation team to check their inventory of cases and follow-up with concerned judges for them to issue commitment orders.

Additional complaints will be filed against the escaped detainees, the official said.

SPD chief Police Brigadier General Kirby Kraft encouraged the public to coordinate with the nearest police station if they have information on the PUPCs.
