THE in­ves­ti­ga­tors of Po­lice Sta­tion 8 in Ba­colod City are now pre­par­ing the rob­bery charges to be filed against the sus­pects who robbed the two jew­elry stores in­side Gaisano City Grand Mall last week.

Po­lice Ma­jor Charles Gever, chief of Po­lice Sta­tion 8, said they are wait­ing the doc­u­ments from the com­plainants so they can file the charges against the sus­pects. He said of more than 10 sus­pects, three of them were iden­ti­fied as a cer­tain Kenneth, Philip, and its leader Mar­lon Paro­hinog, all res­i­dents of Oza­miz City.

On Au­gust 7, more than 10 uniden­ti­fied as­sailants, who were armed with long and short firearms, de­stroyed the stall glasses of Haol­ing Jew­elry Store and F&C Pawn­shop and Jew­elry Store us­ing a ham­mer and carted away P4.5 mil­lion worth of jew­elry at Gaisano City Grand Mall.

The three sus­pects were iden­ti­fied through the footages of closed-cir­cuit tele­vi­sion (CCTV) cam­eras of the mall and the state­ment of the wit­nesses.

Gever said they are still con­duct­ing fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion to iden­tify the com­pan­ions of the sus­pects.

Ba­colod City Po­lice Of­fice (BCPO) di­rec­tor Po­lice Colonel Henry Biñas ear­lier said that he al­ready or­dered all the sta­tion chiefs to in­ten­sify its vis­i­bil­ity pa­trol and to alert the busi­ness es­tab­lish­ments within their areas of ju­ris­dic­tion.

“It’s an iso­lated case, but we need to ad­dress this prob­lem,” he said./
