FOUR alleged members of a gang called, “Dura Dura Gang” said to be victimizing hapless bus passengers were nabbed in Plaza Lawton, Ermita, Manila the other night.
First nabbed by the Lawton Police Community Precinct were Jayson Libanin, 26 , of 482 Maganda St., Sampaloc and Mark Bactol, 30, of 121 V.Mapa St., Sampaloc. They were arrested at around 7 p.m. inside a transport bus.
PMajor Virgilio Platon, block commander of the MPD – Lawton Police Community Precinct, said that they received a complaint regarding the illegal activities of the suspects inside the bus.
Based on the complaint, Platon said he and his men went to the said area and found the suspects on a bus going to Liwasang Bonifacio. They were positively identified by the passengers.
While under investigation, the suspects identified their cohorts Richard Moreno, 39 and Erwin Obemio, 36, both of 1035 Matimyas St., Sampaloc, Manila.
Moreno and Obemio were nabbed in a follow-up operation along Blumentritt Street.
The said gang’s modus operandi is to spit on their prospective victim to divert his attention while other members steal from him.#
