A priest assigned in Corella lost P45,000 in cash after allegedly falling prey to a thief who broke into his multicab in Tagbilaran City on Saturday dawn.
Fr. Roy Ream Bonanza, a 33-year-old assistant parish priest living in San Isidro town, told police that his Suzuki multicab was ransacked in Purok 3, Brgy. Tiptip, Tagbilaran City at past 5 a.m.
According to Bonanza, his vehicle was parked at the side of the road while he was attending a birthday party.
The vehicleâ€™s rear window was forcibly opened, he said.
Other than the bundle of cash, the thief also reportedly took the priestâ€™s automated teller machine card, identification cards, his vehicleâ€™s certificate of registration and other personal belongings.
