Man arrested for shoplifting at S&R Alabang branch

Recently in the progressive city of Muntinlupa, another shoplifting incident took place at S&R Membership Shopping in Alabang only this time it’s about one man who tried to steal two bottles of liquor worth over P20,000 in combined total value, according to a Manila Bulletin news report. It should be recalled that shoplifters were caught in the same S&R branch a few weeks prior.

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

A man was arrested for shoplifting a popular and pricey liquor at the S&R warehouse club in Muntinlupa on April 2.

The Muntinlupa police identified the suspect as Jay-r Layan, 33, who is allegedly listed on S&R’s gallery of shoplifters.

Layan was arrested by security guards at the S&R branch in Alabang at about 5 p.m.

The police said that security officer-in-charge Romeo Orua was conducting a routine roving when he saw the suspect enter the S&R Alabang branch.

He discreetly followed the suspect and caught him in the act of putting items in his waist and hurriedly run outside without paying.

Orua and Lowelyn Ruallo of the S&R internal security chased the suspect and arrested him. Recovered from his possession were two bottles of Remy Martin worth P21,298.

Layan and the recovered items were brought to the S&R security office and later to the Barangay Ayala Alabang police substation for investigation.
