Saying he was tired of running from the law, a man implicated in the MyGold Pawnshop robbery in Cebu surrendered to the police.

Ruel “Yoyong” Remedios said he wanted to start anew so he surrendered to the Molave Police Station in Zamboanga del Sur last Tuesday afternoon.

Remedios was turned over to the Regional Operations Group (RSOG) of the Police Regional Office in Central Visayas (PRO-7).

A warrant for the arrest of Remedios had been issued by Judge Soliver Peras of Regional Trial Court Branch 10 in Cebu City.

Remedios was allegedly one of the persons who robbed My Gold Pawnshop in Cebu City last April 25. Assorted jewelry worth P5 million were taken.

Police said Remedios also participated in the robbery of an e-bingo club in Mandaue City last March and one in Dumaguete on April 30.

Remedios was also suspected of robbing the Central Negros Electric Cooperative last March.

Police said Remedios is a member of the defunct Alferez Group, which had links with the Kuratong Baleleng Group, whose primary target was pawnshops.
