- A wanted man in the United States was arrested in Subic
- The American citizen is facing capital murder, killing-for-hire and solicitation of adult to commit felony in Virginia
- The fugitive will be blacklisted after his deportation to prevent him from returning to the Philippines
An American fugitive, described by United States authorities as a dangerous felon, has been arrested by police in Subic, Zambales on Wednesday, January 11.
According to GMA News Online, Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime Morente identified the arrested man as American citizen Yoshikoson Umeko Haddon, who is wanted in Virginia for capital murder, killing-for-hire and solicitation of adult to commit felony.
On September 2016, a warrant for Haddon’s arrest was issued by a US District Court in Virginia. BI Commissioner Morente ordered Haddon’s arrest after he was informed by the US Embassy in Manila that the US State Department has revoked Haddon’s passport, so it makes him an undocumented alien.
“US authorities have described him as a dangerous felon, thus his continued presence here poses a serious threat to public safety,” the BI chief said in a statement.
Morente said the American fugitive used his business as front for his hiding. Haddon is operating a gym and recreational center in Subic.
Haddon is currently detained at the BI detention facility in Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City. He will be blacklisted after his deportation to prevent him from returning to the Philippines.
