Man faces raps for estafa-A A +A
Wednesday, September 4, 2013
A MAN is facing charges before the Regional Trial Court (RTC) for allegedly failing to remit the sales of jewelry items entrusted to him through an agreement.
Charged with estafa is Renante Alvarado of Bajada, Davao City.
Prosecutor Joseph Mamburam found probable cause to charge Alvarado based on the complaint by Elmyra Evangelio, a worker of Crisanel Pawnshop located on Lapu-Lapu St., Agdao.
Evangelio, in her affidavit, said she and the accused entered in a trust receipt agreement last June 6, 2009, wherein Evangelio entrusted Alvarado to sell a bracelet worth P16,800, a bangle worth P21,840, two gold chains worth P13,200, three pendants worth P20,020, and three rings worth P35,910, all amounting to P107,700.
The agreement also states that Alvarado should return the proceeds of the jewelry 30 days after they have signed the agreement.
On July 6 of the same year, the complainant contacted Alvarado to collect the proceeds of the jewelry or return the jewelry if they were not sold. The accused, however, did not remit the proceeds, neither the jewelry items.
The following day, Evangelio sought assistance from lawyer J. Melchor Quitain Jr., who issued a notarial demand obliging Alvarado to return the proceeds or the jewelry. After five days, Alvarado still refused to comply with the trust receipt agreement. Thus, the charges were filed. (RPSA)
