MOTORCYCLE-RIDING gunmen held-up and robbed a delivery van of a cigarette firm in a remote village of Zamboanga del Sur.

In a belated report of the Zamboanga del Sur Police Office (ZDSPO), the incident took place around 12:20 p.m. Friday in the village of Esperenza, Ramon Magsaysay town in Zamboanga del Sur.

The police identified the victim as Jope Shedner, 22, a salesman of Premier Genesis Filipinas Corporation; Vincent Tan, 22; and Nomer Chin, 34.


Investigation showed that the victims were delivering cigarettes at a store when two men riding tandem in a motorcycle appeared and declared the heist, the police said.

The gunmen carted away P42,000 and two units of cellular phones taken from the victims when they fled, the police said. (Bong Garcia)
