A remittance center in San Miguel, Bulacan, was robbed by a man wearing a helmet. During the follow-up operation, the suspect was arrested and turned out to be a policeman assigned to Quezon City.
In a report by Emil Sumangil on GMA News “24 Oras” on Tuesday, CCTV footage was shown as the lone robber cleared the money at the remittance center on Monday.
After getting the money, the culprit fled on a black motorcycle.
Police in Bulacan immediately conducted a search operation until the suspect was located and later identified as Police Corporal Moises Yango.
When Yango was caught, he was allegedly spying on another remittance center in San Ildefonso.
Yango was found with his gun, the money stolen from the remittance center, a grenade, and a QCPD ID.
Authorities suspect Yango is also possibly behind the robbery at a remittance center in Nueva Ecija.
The suspect explained that he became involved in criminal activity when he became involved in online cockfighting and fell victim to a pyramid scheme.
PNP chief General Guillermo Eleazar promised that Yango would be fired and a case would be filed.
