Thieves steal P2.7-M cash, jewelry

A FAMILY lost almost P2 million worth of jewelry and branded watches to robbers who entered their house in Barangay Labogon, Mandaue City last Sunday.

The Mandaue Police Station 3 received a call from the hotline 911 at 3:40 p.m. that a robbery just happened in Doña Rosario Village.

When the police officers arrived in the area, the victim (name withheld for the safety of the family) told them they had left for church at 10 a.m. The door was already open when they arrived at 1:40 p.m.

They later found out that the safety vault and the wristwatch display case were no longer in the master bedroom, which is located at the second floor of the house.

Chief Insp. Mercy Villaro, spokesperson of the Mandaue City Police Office (MCPO), said no one was in the house when the robbery happened.

The robbers entered the house through the backdoor.

Among the items that were inside the safety vault were a white gold bracelet with diamond (P120,000), stainless steel bracelet with diamond (P24,000), diamond earrings (P300,000), gold with diamond earrings (P24,000) and three documents of their vehicle.

The items inside the wristwatch display case were two Rolex (P800,000 and P300,000), two Ingersoll (P28,000 and P24,000), two Hamilton (P36,000 and P38,000), a U-boat (P150,000), a Tag Heuer (P50,000) and a Philip Stein (P69,000).

Villaro said police are still investigating the incident. There are no closed-circuit television cameras in the house and nearby areas.

The security guard in the village did not record the names of persons who entered the area. (FMG)
