5 More Hold-uppers, Arrested!

Olongapo City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. commended the Olongapo City Police Office (OCPO) headed by PSSupt. Abelardo Villacorta for apprehending five (5) alleged members of the Legaspi Highway Robbery Gang.

Giovanni Anthony Dagame of Purok-3 C Sitio Tahimik, Calapandayan, Subic, Zambales, Lito Legaspi of Barangay Mabayuan and three (3) more minors has been identified to be responsible in several hold-up incidents in Barangay Kalaklan.

According to the police force, the suspects were arrested after Police Station 1 received a complaint from the latest victims last February 15, 2008. The hold-uppers, armed with .45 pistol and knives, posed as ordinary passengers of a blue jeep. They declared “hold-up” as the jeep reached the Public Cemetery in Brgy. Kalaklan.

Several cell phone units, bags, knives, .45 pistol and gun magazine with 7 live bullets were recovered from Dagame, Legaspi and the 3 minors.

The three minors involved were turned over to the Olongapo Center for Assistance, Rehabilitation and Empowerment (OCARE) while Dagame and Legaspi are detained at OCPO Station 1 while criminal charges are being readied against them.
Bob Palmer Comments:
There are group of four snatchers/pickpocketing who ply the blue jeepney route from Olongapo to Barrio Barretto and back. They had been out of the area for the past year or so but have returned within the last three weeks. They are well dressed. Wear nice shoes. Carry back packs in their front. Target most foreigners. They are of middle age 30-40.
