POLICE are now trying to identify the men who burned a truck and a vehicle in two separate incidents in Davao City over the weekend.
The first incident took place at Purok 10 in Barangay Cadalian in Baguio District around 6:30 p.m. on January 24, wherein a Cameco Harvester truck parked at Davco’s Pineapple Plantation owned by the Davao Agri-Ventures Corporation, was burned.
Record from the Baguio Police Station showed that security guards Arconcel Agton and Charlie Magne Mandate saw unidentified men roaming around the plantation before the incident.
Soon after, they found the truck in flames and the men gone. The damage to property was pegged at P18 million. No one was injured on the incident.
The second burning incident occurred at Purok 27 of Panacan Valley in Barangay Panacan around 3:40 a.m. on January 25, wherein a Hyundai Sedan vehicle, model 2001 with plate number LEG-380, was burned.
Record from the Sasa Police Station showed that the owner of the vehicle was Roy Etulle Ancajas, 41, employee of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) who hails from Mabolo in Cebu.
The victim said he just left the vehicle parked outside his house at Doña Salud Subdivision at Kilometer 10 in Sasa. He later found his vehicle ablaze at Purok 27 in Panacan Valley.
According to the police, the victim believes the incident has something to do with his job.
The victim also told the police that he has no plan on filing a formal complaint on the matter as he is already scheduled to go back to Cebu City this week.
