Police nab suspected
car burglar in Bacolod

A suspected car burglar was arrested by Station 2 policemen after he forced open a car parked at 10 th and Lacson streets in Bacolod City, at about 2:30 p.m. yesterday.

Case investigator, Senior Police Officer 1 Dante Victor Escorpion, identified the suspect as Eduardo Cervantes, 27, of Banga Totong, Brgy. Handumanan, Bacolod.

Michael Mercado, 22, of Celine Homes Subdivision in Brgy. Estefania, Bacolod, and employed by a soft drink company, told the police that he parked his Kia Pride vehicle and went to a nearby advertising firm. When he returned, he said he saw the suspect forcing open his vehicle, but he fled when Mercado tried to accost him.

The complainant sought police help and Cervantes was later found hiding in a vacant lot at 10 th Street.

A hand-held radio, valued at P20,000; wireless printer worth P18,000, two chargers with undetermined market value, P7,000 in cash, and other documents owned by Mercado were recovered from Cervantes when he was arrested, police records show.

The police also seized a six-inch bladed weapon from the suspect, the records added.

Charges for robbery and for violation of City Ordinance 358, or the illegal possession of a bladed weapon, will be filed against Cervantes before the Bacolod City Prosecutor's Office.*
