Civilian informant receives P200,000 reward

CAMP BGEN OSCAR M FLORENDO — A civilian who gave information to the police that led to the capture of one of Pangasinan’s most wanted persons, received today (November 18) his cash reward in a simple ceremony here.

Police Senior Superintendent Pepito U. Domantay, Deputy Regional Director for Operations of the Region 1 police, handed over the P200,000 reward money to the informant who was simply identified as “Roden” for the information he gave to the police that resulted in the arrest of Delfin E. Radam, “alias Ben”, one of Pangasinan’s most wanted persons.

Radam, 65, a resident of Pocal-Pocal, Alaminos City, Pangasinan was collared by operatives of the Pangasinan Provincial Police Office, the PRO1 Regional Intelligence Division, and the Pasay City police on June 1, 2009 in his hiding place at Decena Street, Libertad, Pasay City. He has a standing warrant of arrest for six counts of rape issued by Judge Jules Mejia of Regional Trial Court Branch 55 in Alaminos City.

“The arrest of Radam is truly a manifestation of community participation, and this reward we’re giving to Roden is one way of expressing our gratitude,” Domantay said even as he added that “we are hopeful that through Roden’s example, more citizens will extend their arms in helping the police against criminality.”

Radam was listed the Most Wanted Person (MWP) in the provincial level with a monetary reward of P200,000 approved by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) under Memorandum Circular Number 2006-146 dated October 26, 2006.#
