Saturday, January 11, 2014
A 21-YEAR-OLD security guard was charged before the City Prosecutor's Office for allegedly stealing cash from a 52-year-old man at Susana Homes in Baliok, Davao City on Thursday.
Facing robbery charges is Jeyford Colipano Codino of Rosalina Village in Dumoy, Toril. Codino was charged based on the complaint of the victim Christopher Lucas Mendoza.
Investigation conducted by Talomo police revealed that the incident took place around midnight.
Mendoza told police that his P3,000 placed on top of the refrigerator at his house was missing.
Police then found out that the respondent gained entry by detaching the jalousie blades of the window near the backdoor of the house and took the cash.
The respondent, however, left his mobile phone, paving the way for the police to track him down and arrest him at his residence.
Codino is currently detained at Talomo Police Station while the stolen cash was documented at the same station before it was returned to the owner. The case is being handled by Prosecutor Serafica Justiniani-Weis. (RPSA)
