A 30-YEAR-OLD man accused for breaking into the house of a real estate agent is now facing charges before the Regional Trial Court (RTC).
Superintendent Ruben Ramos, chief of the Buhangin Police Station, identified the suspect as Erick John Flores Apostol of Purok Talisay in Buhangin. He was charged with robbery in an inhabited house under the Revised Penal Code (RPC).
Prosecutor Victoriano Bello Jr. found probable cause to charge the accused based on the affidavit/complainant filed by Rodecer dela Cerna Paniza, 32, of Purok Medalla in Barangay Milagrosa, Buhangin.
Based on the Buhangin Police Station record, the accused was arrested around 2 a.m. Wednesday after he was caught by the victim inside his house.
The complainant was sleeping when the accused went inside his room and took his valuables. Paniza woke just in time to see Apostol walking off with the stolen items.
The suspect was arrested by the police soon after. Recovered from the possession of the suspect were an Acer brand laptop worth P24,000, one Nokia X3 brand cellular phone worth P10,000, and P1,500 cash.
The accused is now detained at the Buhangin Police Station. The case would be raffled off today (Thursday). (ICT)
