TWO men on a motorcycle were arrested in a follow-up operation at Barangay Bata, Bacolod City early Friday morning after they snatched a young woman’s cellular phone on Burgos-Hilado Streets.
Collared were Danilo Vergara, 21, and Brenan Perez, 29, both residents of Purok Mahimayaon, Barangay Bata.
Chief Inspector Ritchie Gohee, head of Police Station 4, said EG Marie Rectra of Barangay Granada was in front of their family store when both suspects passed and snatched her cellular phone.
A follow-up operation was conducted after the suspects were traced through the cellular phone’s Global Positioning System (GPS), a satellite-based navigation system.
They were cornered by police in front of a computer shop at 3:45 a.m. The stolen item was recovered from Perez’s possession.
A robbery charge was filed against Vergara and Perez who are detained at the station.
