Police alert up
for rob group

BY ADRIAN NEMES III

Four members of the notorious “Ozamis Robbery Group” believed to be behind the P3.6 million heist at the Central Negros Electric Cooperative are back in Bacolod City, Senior Supt. Edgardo Ordaniel, Bacolod Police officer-in-charge, said yesterday.

Ordaniel said he received a text message from Dumaguete City that the group arrived in Negros Island last week.

He said he has ordered BCPO intelligence branch head Senior Insp. Jose Mulleta to track down the group and check if they have a target establishment in Bacolod or in nearby areas.

He also said he met with some members of the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry and presented to them the pictures of the Ozamis gang members, that will also be distributed to hotels and pension houses.

If these personalities check in at their establishments, Ordaniel advised hotel and pension house owners that they should report their presence to the nearest police station immediately.

MBCCI president Frank Carbon said they are alarmed at the spate of crimes in Bacolod City recently, citing the P20 million robbery at the Prenda Negrense and Jewelry Store and the hold-up of a couple in the downtown area Monday night, who were divested of P200,000.

Ordaniel said he is deploying additional policemen downtown to deter crimes, and assured that are on top of the situation.*APN
