CLOSE to P60,000 worth of personal and government owned properties were stolen by still unidentified burglars who forcibly opened the Information and Communications (ICT) department of the La Trinidad National High School in Lubas, La Trinidad in the early morning of September 8.
School watchman Lucio Tanacio Aguindang Sr., 59, of Lubas, reported to police the incident after conducting a patrol with English teacher Agustin Dao-anis where they noticed the padlock of the ICT office was cut with an undetermined kind of tool prompting them to check inside. They discovered the lockers inside were forcibly opened while other things were in disarray.
Initial investigation showed the suspects took personal and government issued laptop worth P59,976, a cellular phone owned by one of the students, and coin bank with more or less P1,200.
Three latent prints were developed and lifted from the crime scene.
Investigators said there were no CCTV cameras installed in the vicinity of the crime scene while the duty watchman did not notice the incident.
