SAN SIMON - Four em­ploy­ees of SG Farm Food and Pro­cess­ing Plant oper­at­ing along Que­zon Road in this town were nabbed by lo­cal po­lice after al­legedly try­ing to steal 13 crates of dressed chick­ens from their work­place.

Chief In­spec­tor Louie Gon­zaga, this town’s chief of po­lice, pre­sented to me­dia the three ar­rested sus­pects iden­ti­fied as Ray­mond Mabao, 27, Au­gust Al­faro, 34, and Ryan Bene­dict Al­diano, 19, while one Bar­ton Zita was able to elude ar­rest and is still at large.

Ac­cord­ing to Gon­zaga, the sus­pects were caught red-handed by com­pany se­cu­rity guards load­ing the 13 crates con­tain­ing 250 dressed chick­ens with an es­ti­mated value of P33,000 from the pro­cess­ing plant in a com­pany van with­out author­ity from man­age­ment.

When con­fronted, Gon­zaga said that the sus­pects ini­tially tried to es­cape but were col­lared by the se­cu­rity guards be­fore they were prop­erly turned over to lo­cal po­lice.

“We have al­ready re­ceived the same re­ports be­fore but this is the only time that the sus­pects were iden­ti­fied and caught. We re­ally sus­pect that the em­ploy­ees have been do­ing this for a long time now,” he said.

When asked, sus­pect Al­faro, who was em­ployed as ice­man for some two years in the com­pany, ad­mit­ted to the crime and ex­pressed his re­gret, say­ing he was only forced to do it due to poverty.

Sus­pect Al­diano, mean­while, de­nied his in­volve­ment in the crime and as­serted
