Snatcher of P4-T rode a sportsbike

A man riding a sports motorcycle reportedly grabbed a beltbag full of cash from a man who had just come out of a hardware store in the capital town last week.

Juanito Gianan y Francisco, 35, married and a resident of barangay Salvacion, Bagamanoc, told police that at about 9 A.M. of Dec. 19, he was waiting for a tricycle ride to downtown just infront of J.C. Cua Construction & Supply in sitio Nagtubag, Capilihan when the incident occurred.

He said that a man riding a yellow-green sports bike grabbed the black beltbag strapped to Gianan's waistline and sped towards Bato and San Miguel. The bag contained P4,000.00 cash. He described the suspect as wearing black shades, with a stout belly, short-haired, and about 5'6" in height.

In another development, a police officer apprehended two men reportedly smuggling illegally-sourced lumber aboard a tricycle in Virac.

Insp. Raul Destura arrested Oliver Tumpang y Bermejo, 21, a tricycle driver from San Isidro Village and Renato Ocampo y Padilla, 37, married, from Buyo last Dec. 18 at about 12:15 P.M. near the Tuplano hardware store in barangay San Roque when their tricycle was found to be loaded with six pieces of sawn lumber without proper documents.
