Tagum heist, who did it?
TAGUM CITY – A week after gunmen killed a security guard following a daring robbery at 2 jewelry shops inside a mall in Tagum City in Davao del Norte province, police are yet to come up with solid leads about the gang.
Police said the gunmen swooped down on the shops after overpowering the guards, but one mall security tried to fight off the raiders and was fatally shot.
Inspector Anjanette Tirador, of the local police force, said the guard was still rushed to the hospital.
The gunmen also fired shots in the air before escaping on motorcycles. Policemen, who responded to the scene, pursued the robbers, but did not catch up with them.
Police mounted a search for the gunmen and investigators were reviewing footage from the mall’s security cameras in an effort to identify the members of the gang. Probers said they also recovered empty casings of bullets fired from automatic pistols and rifles carried by the gunmen.
It was unknown how much worth of jewelries were taken by the gunmen from the heist. (Jayson Mag-usara)
