MANILA, Philippines – A group of robbers breached the cashier’s office of the Land Transportation Office in Surigao City on Monday, carting away close to P110,000 cash.
A belated police report said one of the suspects have been arrested. However, investigators could not juice information from the suspect because he is not only a minor, but also deaf and mute.
The suspect is only 14 years old and a resident of Purok Philvocs, Barangay Washington in Surigao City.
Police said the group of robbers gained entry into the LTO’s cashier’s office and forcibly opened the steel cabinet containing P108, 583 cash. The robbers also broke the supply room’s padlock on the second floor of the LTO building.
The robbery was discovered after Monday’s flag raising, police said.
Police have recovered some lost LTO items from the possession of the deaf-mute suspect but did not indicate if the cash money was recovered.
