MABALACAT CITY -- Four men are facing robbery charges in connection with the break-in at an outlet of LBC money transfer here last January 1, where some P750,000 cash was stolen.
The suspects, who are still at large, are identified as Requino Bulanit Dacmeg Jr. of Isabela; Arvil Palale Samonte of Baguio City; Bryan Ay-Em Ban-Ang of Isabela; and Ken Cawasan Gupak Jr.
City Police Director Ferdinand Perez said two witnesses identified the four suspects.
Perez said the suspects allegedly managed to enter the establishment by passing through a drainage system and drilling a hole.
They destroyed the vault and carted away the cash and a cellular phone owned by the company, the police said.
Inspector Jesus Dungca, Dau police chief, said a huge amount of money was left by the suspects and later recovered by LBC employees inside the establishment.
But the LBC staff did not allow police officers to count the recovered money, Dungca added.
