Police have determined the identity of the big man who was caught on cam robbing a dental clinic in Bacoor, Cavite. The suspect even apologized to his victims before leaving after getting the money earned by the clinic.
In a report by Jun Veneracion on GMA News “24 Oras” on Wednesday, it was said that the man robbed the said dental clinic in Bacoor just last week.
On the CCTV camera inside the clinic, the man can be seen pretending to be a patient, so he was allowed to enter.
Moments later, he pulled out a gun and let the employees and a female patient inside.
The man said all he needed was money.
When he got the clinic’s income, he left and fled in a car.
But before the incident, it was found out that he also robbed a dental clinic in Bacoor and stole money on October 7.
There was still a cellphone left that he could take away, but he did not.
He also robbed a pharmacy in a nearby town in Imus, Cavite.
According to the police, the culprit’s identity has been determined as John Michael Romero, who was arrested in Pasay last year for a holdup.

Meanwhile, a woman was found dead with bullet wounds in her rented house in Malate, Manila.
