Former Bold Star Katrina Paula Wanted for Carnapping Case

Former sexy star Katrina Paula is now the subject of a nationwide manhunt after having gotten herself embroiled in an alleged gang syndicate operating in Metro Manila and nearby regions.

According to Chief Superintendent Leonardo Espina, chief of the Police Highway Patrol Group, Paula�s involvement in the case stemmed from results of a thorough investigation that led to her being identified as the common law wife of one Raymond Dominguez, said to be the leader of a car theft group.

Authorities raided the condominium unit of Paula and Dominguez at Palo Verde Condominium, Barangay Malamig in Mandaluyong City on November 2. Recovered at the site were six high-end vehicles, including a BMW, a Mazda 3, a Mitsubishi Montero, and an Isuzu D-Max pick-up truck.

Former Labor Undersecretary Dionisio Dela Cerna�s stolen Hyundai Sta. Fe was also recovered at the scene. Recovered as well was the plate number of the stolen vehicle of Malaya sports editor Jimmy Cantor.

The raid also yielded stacks of paraphernalia, including stolen license plates and car registration papers, two white face masks and hand gloves.

Dominguez and Paula, however, eluded arrest.

We are studying closely the case of Katrina Paula. Because given that these stolen vehicles are found in the parking lot of their condominium unit, then she must know something,� Espina explained during a press conference.

This was not the first time that Paula�s name had been dragged into controversy. In 2008, a supposed suitor of Paula was alleged to have arranged the murder of her former husband, Anton Yap, owner of Metallica and Paradise night clubs.

Yap was shot and killed by motorcycle-riding gunmen in front of their home in West Avenue, Quezon City.

According to one of Yap�s children, days prior to the shooting, their father warned them of a man looking for him. Police said the man being referred to by Yap was identified as a suitor of the starlet.

Footage shown on ABS-CBN�s �Umagang Kay Ganda� that time showed a hysterical Paula watching her husband�s lifeless body surrounded by relatives, police investigators and family members.
