P1.2-M reward up for info on San Miguel, Bulacan police chief’s killers

A P1.2-million reward was put up on Sunday by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), Philippine National Police (PNP), and the Bulacan local government for anyone who could provide information on the perpetrators behind the killing of the chief of police of San Miguel, Bulacan.

This came after Police Lieutenant Colonel Marlon Serna was shot in the head by unidentified gunmen in a police operation conducted in San Ildefonso, Bulacan on Saturday night, according to a report by Luisito Santos on Super Radyo dzBB.

Police Regional Office 3 Director Police Brigadier General Jose Hidalgo Jr. said at least P300,000 of this amount would be coming from their office, P500,000 from DILG, and P200,000 from PNP.

Bulacan Governor Daniel Fernando, meanwhile, offered a P200,000 reward.

The two suspects who were alleged thieves were onboard a motorcycle when they fired shots and hit Serna. A 17-year-old male was also wounded due to the incident.

The San Miguel Police that time were conducting a follow-up operation and investigation after receiving a report about a robbery incident in Barangay San Juan.

Hot pursuit operations are ongoing against the suspects who are still at large.

Hidalgo has tasked the Bulacan Provincial Police Office to conduct an investigation on the matter.

The PNP also committed to give assistance to the bereaved family of the victim. —Giselle Ombay/KG, GMA Integrated News
