Three robbers arrested in Parañaque City

Is your home secure and are your valuables safe? I had to ask that question because of a recent robbery that happened in the city of Parañaque. According to Manila Bulletin news report, three people were arrested for robbing a home. Over P1 million worth of cash and jewelry were missing, and only a minority of that was recovered.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Members of the Parañaque police arrested three robbery suspects who are said to be members of the “Akyat Bahay” gang on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Col. Renato Ocampo, city police chief, identified the suspects as Laz Vincent Santos, 21, a fish dealer; Tom Ryuji, 21; and Bernard Valerio, 21.

Ocampo said the suspects are now detained at the police custodial facility and were charged for robbery before the Parañaque City Prosecutor’s Office.

Ocampo said Ednalyn Agbayani, 40, businesswoman, reported to the police that around 2 a.m., she heard a noise from the gate of their house at Ilaya Extension corner Pascor Drive, Barangay Sto, Nino, Parañaque City.

Agbayani told the police that she also heard the suspects trying to open their room. This prompted her to immediately call her parents who were staying in Cavite.

She said when her parents arrived home, they discovered the ceiling of their house was destroyed and their cash amounting to P700,000 and jewelry worth P400,000 were missing.

Ocampo said that during follow-up operation conducted by members of the Sto. Nino police sub-station, Santos was apprehended through the information given to the police by witness Edrian Galario,30, a delivery helper, who claimed that he saw the suspects coming out of the house of the victim.

The city police chief said the two other suspects were identified after waving at the CCTV camera of one of the houses near the victim’s house leading to the arrest of Valerio and the identification of Gabriel as a suspect in the robbery incident.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What is your reaction to this recent development? Do you think Parañaque is still a hot spot for trespassing and robbery? Do you think the suspects could be working for a crime syndicate?
