CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga -- Two unidentified armed men held-up recently a drug store along Sto. Rosario Street, Angeles City and carted away at least P150,000 cash.
Senior Superintendent Eden Ugale, Angeles City police director, said Manson Drug Store located at Sto. Rosario Street was about to close when two suspects armed with a gun of an unknown caliber appeared.
The suspects poked their gun to the lone guard identified as Randy Balco of GAPSAC security agency who was then pulling down the roll up door of the drug store.
After disarming the guard, the suspects dragged him inside the store and then announced the heist, Ugale said.
The suspects threatened to kill Nino Sioco, 37, the store-in-charge and Jelyn Gomex, 26, cashier.
Ugale said the suspects then took and carted away P25,000 cash collections for the day and P127,000 placed in a safety vault.
The suspects then hogtied all the victims using packaging tape before they boarded unknown vehicle and fled.
