Doc, retiree lose stereos to thieves

A physician and a retiree lost their car stereos to unidentified thieves recently in the capital town, police reported last week.

Joaquin Marino y Gianan, 73, married and a resident of barangay Cavinitan, was attending the High Mass at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral during the Virac town fiesta last Dec. 8 when the suspects made off with the stereo mounted inside his service jeep parked near the church. The item has not been traced as of presstime.

Eleven days later, Dr. Omar Anthony Zantua y Lizaso, 33, single and a resident of barangay Francia, was enjoying the sights and sounds of the Christmas Cheers 2000 at Plaza Rizal when unidentified suspects carted off the Pioneer car stereo and aircon unit worth a total of P16,000.00 inside his gray Nissan Sentra. The thieves opened the door of the car  while it was parked infront of Lepanto Enterprises in barangay San Jose about midnight of Dec. 19.

Meanwhile, three teenagers went to the police last week to put on record the sad fact that they entrusted cash to a man who promised to get them a car stereo and then failed to return.

Ace Bagadiong y Alberto, 13, of Rawis; Louie Villaflor y Dolores, 18, of Sta. Cruz; and, Marc Arthur Vidal y Egot, 14, of Rawis, claimed that in barangay Lanao, they gave P800 cash to a certain Noe Sarmiento, Jr. of Rawis with which to purchase a car stereo last Dec. 17. Sarmiento told them to wait but he failed to come back after three hours.
