Cops await decision of victim vs brod-A A +A
Sunday, June 29, 2014
THE Talamban Police Station will wait for the owner of a vehicle, which had been reportedly carnapped by her own brother, to decide if she will file a complaint against the suspect.
Last Monday, Maria Marjorie Ranili Purino, a faculty member of the University of San Carlos Talamban campus, reported the matter to the police after she found out that her Isuzu Crosswind was missing.
SPO1 Gringo Muldez told Sun.Star Cebu that Purino believed that her brother Ferdinand may the one behind her missing car.
Muldez said that Purino received a text message last Tuesday from her brother demanding cash in exchange for the car.
On the next day, the police recovered the car, which was abandoned at the St. John Seminary, Good Shepherd, Barangay Guadalupe, Cebu City.
As of press time yesterday, Muldez said that they have not caught Ferdinand yet.
He said that they will know tomorrow if Purino will file a complaint against her brother.
Purino called up Sun.Star Cebu yesterday to deny the earlier statement of the police that Ferdinand had warned her that she will lose her car.
She also denied having told the police that she was threatened by her brother. (John Cavin Sabonsolin, USJ-R Mass Com Intern)
