Jailbirds saw iron, fly free

Police hot on their trail


BACOLOD CITY – Four jailbirds of Police Station 3 sawed off the iron bars of their detention cell and are now flying free with the police hot on their trail.

“They naturally want to get away as far as possible but we are after them,” local PNP spokesman, Police Lt. Col. Ariel Pico, told DNX.

Police identified the escapees as Sunny Capa, Ely Lorence, Michael Penoso, and Jeffrey Elangos.

Capa and Lorence, 22, are residents of Banago village while Penoso is from Village 2. All are charged for drug-related crimes except Elangos, 38, who has been charged for child abuse.

Their escape was discovered around 12:45am today by the jailers on duty.
