A school in Barangay Dampas Tagbilaran City fell prey to a still unidentified burglar on Friday, said police.
Nino Romas, campus manager of the Cebu Sacred Heart College, told Tagbilaran City police investigators that the school lost around P70,000 in cash.
According to Romas, the school’s maintenance personnel first found out of the burglary at around 5:30 a.m. then immediately reported the incident to him.
The suspect reportedly forced his way into the canteen breaking its lock before moving to where the money was kept.
In his report to authorities, Romas said that the school’s administration office beside the canteen was left in disarray.
Amid the clutter, school personnel noticed that a steel box containing the cash which was kept in a drawer inside the office was missing.
Based on initial investigation, police noted that the burglar went inside the school building from the ceiling before heading to the canteen and admin office.
Meanwhile, the Tagbilaran City police’s theft and robbery section was tasked to conduct further investigation on the case. (Weli Maestrado)
