Bacolod City – SSupt. Edgardo Ordaniel, Bacolod City Police Office acting director, said robbery charges are being readied against the two suspects in the P2.5-million robbery of a pawnshop here.

BCPO operatives have identified the two suspects through the statements of employees of a pension house where the suspects stayed before the heist of Prenda Negrense pawnshop.

C/Insp. Danilo Francisco said they presented the pictures of six suspected members of the “acetylene gang” and two were positively identified as part of the group who checked in the pension house.

Francisco said one of the suspects is about 40 years old and a miner from Kalinga Apayao province, while the other one is about 45 years old and a taxi driver from Baguio City.

“The two were arrested with four companions for attempting to rob a pawnshop in an area in Negros Occidental several years ago,” Francisco said.

Ordaniel said the pension house management suspects that their former employee could be part of the robbery as his native province is near the origins of the suspects. The employee also failed to report to duty Sunday.

The management of the pension house said the suspects checked in February 13 until February 17.

“Although the employee has denied involvement in the crime, he will still be investigated,” Francisco said.
