NVizcaya cops score on copper wire thieves

SOLANO, Nueva Vizcaya (25 October) -- Police authorities on Monday(October 23) have arrested two suspected thieves of copper wire in barangay Bagahabag owned by Digitel Telecommunications Company.

Police Senior Inspector Reiner Medina, this town's chief of police refused to disclose the suspects' identities so as not to spoil the on-going investigation.

"The suspects are also from this town and we believe that they have other colleagues and accomplices for their operation," Medina told reporters here.

Recovered from the suspects were burned copper wires weighing more than 5 kilos.

Medina also commended the cooperation of local officials for the successful arrest of the suspects.

Barangay captain Jose Corpuz, said the suspects were caught red handed at 4 a.m. in a river after villagers tipped their presence.

Corpuz said the theft of copper wires has been tackled during the previous meetings of the Municipal Peace and Order Council(MPOC) in this town where local officials and barangay tanods were alerted to monitor their areas.

Theft of copper wire in the province has been rampant since January this year, paralyzing telecommunication lines from time to time and caused DIGITEL multi-million revenue loses.

Police said copper wire is sold from P500.00 to P600.00 a kilo in Metro Manila junk shops. (PIA-NVizcaya) [top]
