Head of hit men gang arrested
The police have arrested the alleged leader of a gang of contract killers said to be responsible for the deaths of more than 30 people in the Cibao region.
Jairo Jose Fabian Peralta, 36, one of the most wanted criminals in the country and with a police reward of RD$50,000, was captured in La Vega by a private in plainclothes who spotted Peralta on a bus.
Santiago Police spokesman Colonel Lorenzo Morillo said that the fugitive was being sought for the murders of Nicol Valdez and Daris Torres, which took place in February. The private noticed him behaving suspiciously and saw that he was armed, asked for his identification and arrested him.
Dozens of relatives of the victims who wanted to lynch the arrested man went to the main Cibao Police Station and had to be restrained by police agents.
The police have now called on other members of the gang to give themselves up.
