BCPO chief vows to run after holdup suspects

by Robert E. Roperos

BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 5 (PIA) -- Butuan City Police Office (BCPO) Director, PSupt. Pedro Obaldo today said he and the entire police force of the city are determined to run after suspects of series of holdups that took place on the first week of January.

Obaldo said in an interview that they are presently conducting thorough investigations on the series of holdup which victimized businessmen here.

He also said that while the BCPO conducts investigations, police personnel are also formulating strategies to solve the problem.

“Pinag-aaralan na po nating mabuti ‘yan…Alam n’yo kasi ang PNP ay maraming mga guidelines, policies o mga solusyon para sa isang partikular na sitwasyon o problema… Tayo po ay namimili kung anong strategy na ‘yun ang iimplement natin,” Obaldo said.

(We are looking into it… You know, PNP has many guidelines, policies or solutions to be undertaken for a particular situation or problem… and we are going to select what strategy to be implemented.)

With this, the official asked the public to give the police ample time to conduct investigations and solve the prevailing problems.

Among the establishments robbed were the Negros Navigation Superferry Ticketing Outlet located at Lopez Jaena Street, Brgy Humabon, Butuan City.

Investigation revealed that the suspect initially pretended as a customer and once inside, drew his gun, fired it and declared hold-up.

The suspect managed to take the money from cashier’s drawer amounting to Php 7,000 and then fled aboard a motorcycle. (PIA-Caraga with PNP-13 report)
