The Buhangin police arrested the suspect after complainants Suzette Cemanas, Josephine Baguio, and Joy Galeo, all JMC faculty members, positively identified her.

The victims told the police that they left their laptops, cell phones and money in a room on the 4th floor of the school building but when they returned at around 5 p.m., their valuables were already gone.

SPO2 Josepher Quiba said they recovered Cemanas's laptop worth P30,000 at the suspect's house. Liberty also admitted that she pawned Galeo's cell phone at Ros-Ver Pawnshop.

The suspect's mother promised to pay the P2,000 her daughter has stolen from Baguio. Appropriate charges have already been filed against Liberty.
