Dipolog City Mayor Evelyn T. Uy commended the local police force headed by its Acting Chief of Police, Superintendent Ranie Planilla Hachuela, for its immediate response of a murder case in the city that led to the early arrest of an Australian national suspected of perpetrating the crime.
From a special written report submitted by the Dipolog City Police Station to the Zamboanga del Norte Provincial Police Office, it was learned that around 11:30 in the morning of February 1, 2015, elements of the Dipolog City Police Station led by Police Superintendent Ranie P. Hachuela together with elements of the Zamboanga del Norte Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (ZN-CIDG) led by PCI Heryl L.

Goforth, CIDG Negros Oriental led by PCI Aladin Dingal, PIB Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office led by PSI Muhammad Jamiri and other concerned agencies, arrested one Ali Ali at Flores Avenue, Barangay Looc, Dumaguete City. Based on documents recovered by police, Ali Ali is an Australian national with postal address at Number 6 Dunbar CRT, Keilor Downs, Victoria, Melbourne, Australia.
Ali is a suspect in the killing of one Allona B. Alvarez, who was found dead inside a room at Antonio’s Pension House at Martinez St., Central Barangay, Dipolog City last January 30, 2015. Alvarez was a 17-year old student from Barangay Bago, Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte.
