Car burglars forced open three vehicles in different areas of Bacolod City Saturday and took several items from them.
Orville Boncalon, 23, of Brgy. Taloc, Bago City, said he parked his Hilux vehicle in front of a billiard hall at Lizares Street and found that it had been forced open at about 7:45 p.m. and that his laptop computer and cellular phone were gone.
Minutes later, a man, who requested anonymity, told the police that he discovered his Toyota Vios that was parked at the junction of Narra Avenue and B.S. Aquino Drive had also been forced open at about 9:05 p.m. and his bag that contained his shoes and T-shirts was gone.
Serafin Plotria, 33, of Santanville Subdivision, Brgy. Sum-ag and manager of 94.3 I-FM Bacolod, said he discovered his Honda Citi vehicle already open at about 9:05 p.m.
Plotria said the burglars took his laptop computer and his knapsack with clothes and pictures.
Bacolod City Police Special Operations Group Supt. Santiago Rapiz said they already have suspects in the car burglaries who, he said, are from Bacolod City.
While the car burglars have not yet been arrested, Rapiz reminded car owners not to leave valuables in their vehicles as they would attract thieves.*APN
