The National Bureau of Investigation arrested on Tuesday evening the alleged gunman of Cebu lawyer Joey Luis Wee, according an insider familiar with the operation.

The suspect, identified as Fausto Edgar B. Peralta, was arrested in Laguna and will be brought to Cebu City for filing of charges, the source said.

Peralta who is a security officer of Golden Sun Security Agency Inc. was the one who rented the car used by the killers as getaway car.

The cellphone number Peralta listed in the car rental led the NBI agents to his safe house in Laguna.

The source added that Peralta is a member of gun for hire syndicate operating nationwide.G

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra had also confirmed the suspect’s arrest in Laguna.

“The suspect in the murder of Atty Wee in Cebu, a certain Peralta, has been tracked down and arrested in Laguna and taken into custody by the NBI,” DOJ Secretary Menardo Guevarra told reporters.

NBI Director Eric Distor had earlier formed a task force composed of agents from NBI- Cebu, Cavite and Laguna and Death Investigative Division for the capture of Peralta and his cohorts

Wee was shot, last November 23three at the foot of the stairs of his office building by two gunmen who casually walked away after the shooting, video footage showed.
