He was spotted by CCTV operators cruising along corner J.P.

The subject's whereabouts was reported by an IOC personnel to the nearest Davao City Police Office-Mobile Patrol Group operating in the nearby area. He was finally intercepted at the vicinity of the SSS building along J.P. Laurel Avenue and brought to Sta. Ana Police Station for booking and appropriate filing of a criminal offense, Villaroman added.
