Robbers strike in Lubao
CAMP OLIVAS -- Unidentified robbers were able to cart away several valuable items from the 454 General Merchandise located at the EDL Building in Sta. Cruz, Lubao town recently.
A belated report said the robbers entered the store by forcibly opening the left sliding glass window at the building's second floor.
The owner of the store identified as Vincent Uy, 24, a Chinese national, discovered the following morning that the glass cabinet of his store was opened.
Uy, police said, discovered that his assorted cellular phones, tablet, digital cameras, MP3s and several other electronic gadgets amounting to P161,000 were missing.
Police records show that several robbery/holdup incidents have occurred in Lubao for the past several months, but no suspects have been arrested.
CAMP OLIVAS -- An unidentified man managed to drive away with a pick-up parked in front of a store along Lazatin Boulevard in Barangay Dolores, City of San Fernando on Friday.
In a belated report, Superintendent Ricardo David, City of San Fernando police chief, identified the owner of the stolen black Ford pick-up (RHY-740) as Reynaldo Serrano, 47, of Barangay San Jose Apunan, Lubao town.
David said that Serrano parked in front of the Precious Store along Lazatin Boulevard to buy something. David left the vehicle's engine running.
Serrano's unidentified female companion recounted to police that an unidentified man reportedly boarded the pick-up. She jumped out of the vehicle, fearing for her safety.
The man drove the vehicle towards Jose Abad Santos Avenue (Jasa), she told police.
She sustained injuries and was taken to the San Fernandino Hospital for treatment.
David said he immediately established a checkpoint to be able to recover and arrest the carnapper.
