CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga — A suspected gun-for-hire tagged by police as Central Luzon’s No. 3 most wanted person for killing local politicians and policemen was arrested last Sunday in Barangay Bulihan, Plaridel, Bulacan.
            Chief Superintendent Amador V. Corpus, Police Regional Office 3 (PRO3) director, identified the suspect as Guilbert de Castro, alias “Gilbert,” of Barangay Taal, Pulilan, Bulacan.
Corpus declined to identify De Castro’s victims, but said the suspect was facing murder and frustrated homicide charges before the courts in Malolos City.
He said the joint police team, led by Supt. Frankie Candelario, confiscated De Castro’s cellphone during his arrest; and stored in it were valuable information about assassination targets and the people who contracted the killing.
Corpus hinted that names of politicians and policemen were stored in the suspected hitman’s cellphone.
Meanwhile, the PRO3 director said that anti-drugs operations will be conducted non-stop in Central Luzon in order to “ensure the safety and security of the general public.”

His statement came amid the rounding up of nine other drug pushers over the weekend in Olongapo City, Pampanga, Zambales, Bulacan, and Nueva Ecija and the killing of an alias “Badong” in a buy-bust operation in Barangay Capihan, San Rafael, Bulacan.
