Robbers hit pawnshop,
flee with P1M in jewelry

In one minute and 15 seconds, about P1 million in jewelry were gone after five armed men and a woman, believed to be members of the Ozamis robbery group, robbed a pawnshop at downtown Bacolod at about 9 a.m. Saturday.

A closed circuit television camera showed that the suspects entered the F & C Pawnshop and Jewelry Store through its front and back doors and immediately disarmed guards Rommy Abol and Federico Defensor of the Counterpoint Security Agency, city police officer-in-charge, Senior Supt. Edgardo Ordaniel, said yesterday.

They then ordered the guards and the five pawnshop employees to lay face down on the floor, smashed the glass of the display cabinets with tire ranges and tube pipes, gathered the jewelry, and escaped on board a maroon Nissan Escapade van, Ordaniel said.moremoremore
