CEBU CITY, PHILIPPINES- The don’t go for donuts (doughnuts) literally but rather they looked for donut shape items – spare tires of vehicles.
So they are called “Donut Gang” and two of them were arrested yesterday afternoon, August 18, 2019, in a junkyard fronting a known shopping mall at the Cebu City North Reclamation Area.
Richard Rosos, 23, of Barangay Mabolo and his cohort, a 15 year-old minor, were collared past 5pm by the team of Provincial Intelligence Branch (PIB) agents led by Lt. Col. Marlu Conag.
Conag reported to Cebu Provincial Police Director Col. Roderick Mariano that the two were arrested on a hot pursuit operation after an earlier arrest of alleged carnappers in Catmon town.
The suspected squealed that they would bring to the junkyard their stolen items.
Among the seized items incidental to the arrest of the two were assorted spare tires, tools and truck batteries.
Also found out in the junkyard were drug paraphernalia and drums of fuel which were believed to be stolen also by the group in a modus operandi called “paihi” in cahoots with some unscrupulous truck drivers that are operating in the pier area
Meanwhile, in a separate operation, a person with a warrant of arrest for attempted homicide was arrested earlier today in Naga City.
Arnulfo Ocampo, 44, of Barangay Naalad was arrested by the Tracker Team of Naga police station by virtue of the Warrant of Arrest under Criminal Case Number MTCN-005-06 dated March 14, 2008 issued and signed by Hon. Judge Gérardo E. Gestopa Jr. , MTC City of Naga, Cebu.
