New details continue to emerge surrounding the Sunday morning shooting in Fremont which left three men dead and a fourth wounded.

Igmidio “Roger” Mista, 33, of 515 Rawson Avenue, has been arrested and arraigned on three counts of murder, Fremont police Chief Tim Wiersma said at a press conference Monday afternoon.

Mista, a Filipino national, remains jailed in the Sandusky County jail but will soon have to deal with customs and immigration representatives, Wiersma said.

At the press conference, Wiersma said Mista had been in the United States legally at one time, but that is no longer the case.

Also released was the 911 call from about 1:29 a.m. when a tenant who lives above the Last Call Bar reported hearing three gunshots.

Fremont police officers arrived at the scene one minute later, kicking off a manhunt for Mista which concluded 32 hours later, at 9:29 a.m. Monday.

Officers went to the home of a relative of Mista's where he met them at the door and was taken into custody, Wiersma said.

Mista's criminal history in Fremont includes no felonies or violent crimes, according to police reports.

On Feb. 8 2013, he was involved in another incident at the Last Call Bar, Wiersma said.

On that occasion, the police complaint was more focused on those Mista visited the bar with, and not Mista himself, Wiersma said

Mista's criminal record lists two separate incidents in which he was arrested in recent years.

In April 2012, Mista was cited for open container, littering and possession of drug paraphernalia.

And in January 2010, he was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Siya ay wala sa paligid ng isang computer! kung sakaling hindi mo alam!


That was worth the google search!


Google translation: Puppet, you're not alone. We support you.


Well, we can rest assured knowing that most defense lawyers do not accept the Ohio Direction Card for a retainer fee.


sorry, but puppet wont be having access to a computer anytime soon to read this comment, if your a supporter of him, maybe you should travel back to his home away from home when n if we ship his azz back


Hopefully he gets shipped back in a wooden box


It "wooden" have to be a very big box, lil Puppet is all of 4 foot high and 92 pounds.

Maybe one of those suit cases they put ventriloquist dummies in.


Amen and not twenty years from now either. Make this swift justice


ikaw ay isang bahag ang buntot tulad lamang ng sa kanya, umaasa siya ay may magandang veins you are a coward just like him, hope he has good veins


There are a lot more that support the families he murdered. He's a sorry excuse of a person to resort to using a gun in a fist fight. He has short man syndrome and that made him feel like a big man. He's a piece of trash and should be treated as such!!!


Sandusky County had a guy just couple years ago stabbed some people too and he was an illegal Mexican immigrant. They sentenced him to like 20 years in the state pen and said when that is done he will be deported back to Mexico.

Gee, they built that US Border Patrol office in the wrong county. It's in Ottawa County on Route 53 and you see Border Patrol driving around Erie County or sitting in the median on Route 2 burning up gas. They need to get over to Sandusky County and start patroling over there as it sounds to me that is where the illegal immigrants are located.


while they are swinging through sandusky county, have them make a pass through willard in huron county also.. then again the population down there would prob drop by 30%..

R U Kidding me

anyone know him? tell him to get ahold of Obama he will give him citizenship asap. and if he votes for a dem. he will see he gets set free


...but we need amnesty because all of the people who sneak across the border are GOOD people who just want to WORK HARD and CONTRIBUTE!

No, what we NEED is effective border control. And I don't blame the Border Patrol. Especially on the southern border, they've tried to do their jobs, and this administration (as well as the Bush administration, though this one's worse) have all but shut them down.

Sure, we've got an illegal alien who pulled the trigger. But we've got a broken immigration system that let him in and let him STAY which is, as far as I'm concerned, even MORE guilty. After all, Mr. Mista never acted on the pretense he'd protect anybody, now, DID he? And yet many are fooled into thinking this administration gives a damn, or worse, into thinking we should just open our borders to one and all. Ha.


And Obama wants illegals, I mean "undocumented Democrats" here.

Yeah, maybe we'll see obama use executive order before the 2016 election, so prisoners will be allowed to vote. I'm sure Hillary will appreciate some of her old friends voting for her.




The BIG question is, was he an illegal immigrant on Feb. 8 2013? If so, why was he not detained by Fretroits finest then?


Yes he is an illegal from Kenya of course and I helped him dupe everyone to get elected muwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!


now that's evil..

Back off on those funny cigarettes. You lose any more IQ points and your IQ will be so low, you’ll have to dig for it!

Simple Enough II

Catch and release, ins, will tell them they are to busy,so they get released.


Well of his visa expired before that date, I would expect a lawsuit. Rightfully so I might add.


Must be here on the Obama package deal

Would anyone care if the deceased was not an officer?


Absolutely, there were 2 others killed as well. They were sons, brothers,uncles, husbands, and FATHERS! What kind of question is that? Question is, who would care if you were shot? I'm betting a lot of people. Same for them.


Amen BabyMomma. Well Said.

red white and blue

I wish we could fry him now we know he did it lets save some money and hang him tomorrow!!


Where's the ""but illegals do the work American's won't do"" card, anybody play that one , yet? Start shipping their behinds back to wherever they come from. Yes, including the pasty white ones.


Most of the people in that bar are probably here illegally !!!


So far as I've heard, none of the people shot and killed were here illegally.

Dr. Information

But I thought all illegals were here to work and just wanted to be Americans.


To answer your previous question to me, I'm taking my CCW class through Jim Colvin at Bellevue Paintball course. Glad I'm married so I can reap the benefits of the cheaper class price. Saving that $12.50 makes a world of difference!


Obama will take his case.


And the racists and bigots have arrived. Welcome nobodycares!!!

Dr. Information

Truth hurts doesn't it? Don't use the race card vs truth.


Drinfo you know that even in a poker game libs will throw the race card. Its the only pathetic argument they have. koolaid koolaid here!!!


What's your truth?

Ned Mandingo

Maybe now the mexicans around here can understand why most American citizens don't want illegal aliens in our community.


I don't want the LEGAL immigrants here either. For the record. We're overpopulated


Good point. There should be a moratorium on all foreigners coming here. WE are running out of natural and tax resources to take care of them.

Make a lil puppet pinata and let the families of the victims buddy him open. Save Money on keeping the piece of trash in jail.

everyday joe

Wow, he's a little fella!
Now he'll live the American dream....3 square meals a day and free housing!


Somebody should be asking if he's a Muslim Extremist plotting an attack? How does this trash get into the country to begin with? There's more to this than is getting printed. Somebody needs to dig a little deeper into this one?

Concerned For A...

Muslim Extremist? Don't know about that, but there are only a few reasons that I would think of for a Filipino National to be here and shoot up a bunch of people? I'm definitely suspicious there's way more to this story.
