Ecija Mason loses P.2-M cash, gun to burglars
CABANATUAN CITY – A 63-year-old businessman who is a member of the Free and Accepted Masons lost P200,000 worth of cash, jewelry and his pistol when unidentified burglars broke inside his house in Guimba, Nueva Ecija Wednesday evening.
Senior Superintendent Crizaldo Nieves, provincial police director, identified the victim as Angelo Mendoza, 63, of Barangay Sta. Veronica, Guimba.
The break-in was discovered at around 5:40 pm Wednesday.
Police Superintendent Renato David, Guimba police chief, said Mendoza left his house at around 9 am Wednesday and went to this city.
He returned at around 4 pm.
Mendoza told police that when he was about to change his clothes in his room, he noticed that his gold bracelet with a Mason logo and necklace placed on top of his drawer were both gone.
When he checked on his money worth P200,000 kept in his closet, he learned it was also missing as well as his Glock 40 caliber pistol placed under his bed.
Mendoza said all the doors of the house were locked when he left in the morning.
But when police came, they saw no signs of any forcible entry. – Manny Galvez
