A detainee who is facing a drug case bolted from the detention center of Margosatubig Municipal Police Station on yesterday dawn.

Police Regional Office 9 (PRO9) spokesperson Chief Insp. Helen Galvez identified the escapee as Abdulsalim Modapil Mangongaya alias Dondon Sanday, 36, married, of Sitio Luguimit, Poblacion, Margosatubig, Zamboanga del Sur (ZDS) Province.

Galvez said that the detainee was only discovered missing at about 2 a.m. yesterday. Mangongaya was just arrested lastThursday for violation of R.A. 9165, otherwise known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

A manhunt operation was carried out by the municipal police personnel for the possible re-capture of Mangongaya. Coordination has also been made with the other police station.

The PRO9 is requesting the local populace to immediately report to the hotline numbers 0955-1020565 or 09985986803 or to the barangay officials if ever the escapee is seen in their locality.

Police said that Mangongaya was able to escape after cutting the iron bar at the back portion of the detention cell and then used it as his passageway. Another detainee, an old man, refused to flee with him from the jail. (Eugene A. Lasprilla)
