FOUR people believed to be members of a robbery gang ransacked a pawnshop and a motorcycle distributor outlet in the province of Zamboanga del Norte and carted away more than P10 million, the police said Tuesday.

Zamboanga Peninsula police information officer Ariel Huesca said the incident possibly happened Sunday evening but was only discovered around 8 a.m. Monday.

Chief Inspector Huesca said the robbers carted away P130,000 cash and an estimated P10 million worth of jewelries from the Exquisite Pawnshop at General Luna Street in Dipolog City, the capital of Zamboanga del Norte.


The police also reported that the Norkis GC located beside the pawnshop lost P70,000 cash, a laptop worth P30,000 and a bracelet worth P12,000 to the robbers.

The robbers entered the two establishments through a tunnel they dug-up from a boarding house they rented nearby.

Police investigation continues to ascertain the identities of the perpetrators. (Bong Garcia)
