No lead yet on robbery of bank workers-A A +A
Wednesday, June 27, 2012
POLICE authorities admitted Tuesday that the management of Banco de Oro has still not issued any detail on the exact amount of money that was lost to two robbers on Monday morning.
Operatives of Cogon Police Station said, however, that even if they lack cooperation from the two employees of BDO, this would not hinder them from pursuing their investigation.
On Monday morning, two employees of Banco de Oro were held up by two armed men inside DOLS Commercial after collecting the establishment’s money that is due to be deposited.
Senior Police Officer 3 Charlie Nemeño of Police Station 2 in Cogon told Sun.Star that the armed men took away an undetermined amount of cash from the two employees, whom he refused to identify reportedly upon their request.
Nemeño said the suspects took the bag where the money was placed from one of the employees at gunpoint.
Police said the establishment’s security guard, Eduardo Lisboa, 21, failed to help the two BDO employees after one of the suspects also pointed a gun at him and took his .38 caliber service pistol.
Police said the suspect who took the bag later fled on board a red XRM motorcycle while his companion also fled using a black Honda wave motorcycle.
Operatives said even the management of DOLS Commercial also failed to provide information about the incident.
The two BDO employees have reportedly given a sketch of the two suspects for “facial composite” while investigation is ongoing. (Stephanie V. Berganio)
