GUN-FOR-HIRE GANG LEADER DIES IN SHOOTOUT

 

June 25, 2015

 

Richard Celendron, the suspected leader of a notorious gun-for-hire group in Metro Manila, whom police authorities had been chasing for months, was killed in a shootout with CIDG detectives and the local police of Montalban, Rizal on Wednesday evening.

 

CIDG Chief, Police Director Benjamin B. Magalong said that Celendron led the “Hinirang”, a gang tagged by the PNP as one of the most violent criminal groups operating in Metro Manila. Known for gun-for-hire activities, the group has been implicated in more than 50 reported killings in the metro since last year.

 

Based on the report submitted by CIDG NCR Chief, Police Superintendent Danilo P. Macerin, Celendron was killed Wednesday evening during a shootout with CIDG detectives and personnel of Rodriguez Municipal Police Station, who were trying to implement a Search Warrant on his residence in Brgy. San Isidro, Rodriguez, Rizal. Apparently, Celendron pulled out a caliber .45 pistol and fired shots at the raiding team, which prompted the operating team to retaliate. The suspect was brought to the Ynarez General Hospital but was declared dead-on-arrival.

 

The law enforcement operation also resulted in the arrest of Augusto Mercado and Ramon Bulatao, both suspected associates of Celendron who were found in possession of loaded firearms. Detectives recovered a caliber.45 MK IV Series pistol from Celendron, a loaded DAMAR revolver from Bulatao, and a 9mm Beretta pistol with live ammo from Mercado. A loaded shotgun, several army camouflage uniforms, assorted identification cards were discovered and seized from his residence.

 

Notable among the seized items were several handheld radios and a base radio found inside his home. Detectives suspect that the gang had been intercepting the local police’s radio messages, thus, the reason they were able to elude arrest in the past months.

 

According to the local police, the “Hinirang” group had been linked to more than 50 reported killings in Quezon City, Rizal province, and nearby areas. People knew about Celendron and his string of crimes. For one, his group is the primary suspect in the murder of an operations officer of the Novaliches Police Station, Police Chief Inspector Roderick Medrano in March 2015.

 

In Quezon City, where he was first reported to be residing, and in Montalban Rizal, there were numerous police blotters about drive-by shootings, and people who were killed in broad daylight. The community knew that Celendron and his group were involved. But nobody stepped forward to file formal complaints against him and his group. The level of violence the “Hinirang” perpetrated made the community fearful to report the crimes committed by the gang and to testify against them.

 

The arrest and consequential death of the reputed leader of the Hinirang Group comes on the heels of the intensified anti-criminality campaign of the PNP in Metro Manila, dubbed as “Lambat Sibat”. The CIDG is deeply involved in the campaign and has been going after the most notorious criminal groups in the metro through sustained, proactive and coordinated investigations.

 

Law enforcement operations against the other members of the “Hinirang” and other criminal groups will continue unabated.
