According to Acting Chief of Police of the Bato Municipal Police Station (MPS), PMaj. Andrew Alcomendas, the victim reportedly met with the perpetrators Rodel Fernandez and another man known only by the alias ‘Denden,’ both residents of Sitio Cave, Burias Island, San Pascual, Masbate, for gold bars.

Servan reportedly charged P200,000 for the gold bars, which were still wrapped in a plastic sack, in the aforementioned transaction, according to him. In this case, the perpetrators reportedly offered the victim more gold bars in exchange for her cellphone, which they used to photograph the gold bars.

Servan found the gold bars given to him by the suspects were fake when he returned to his car. As a result, he returned to the location of the transaction right away, but the perpetrators had vanished.

Apart from the P200,000 payments by the victim, Alcomendas claims that he first gave the perpetrators P100,000 so that the gold bars could not be sold to anyone. Authorities are still looking into the case, particularly to find out where the suspects may be.
