Witnesses said that Dalogdog, who was on duty as a security guard at Sarrosa Fishpond when the NPA rebels attacked the area, served as lookout of the NPA to give then signal to initiate the raid.
Lactao added that after the robbery in Sagay City, Dalogdog tried to hide until he was arrested in Metro Manila.
