The police authorities arrested seven suspects who have been caught stealing copper cable wires in Quezon City.
Nowadays, robbery has been one of the major problems not only in the Philippines but also in various regions all around the world. Some criminals have no choice but to commit crimes due to lack of job opportunities.
The Philippine government is implementing stricter policy but the crimes continue to exist behind the knowledge of the authorities. The rate of criminality continue to increase despite the stricter rules and regulations.
Recently, seven suspects wearing uniforms with reflectors and hard hats have been caught on camera stealing copper wires. The thieves imitate the uniforms of employees from a telecommunication company.
In the video, it can be seen that the robbers have been gathering the cable wires beside the road and transferring them to the vehicle.
According to the police authorities, the barangay officials confronted the suspects and reported the incident to the police officers roaming in the area. The cops immediately respond and arrest the thieves.
The police officers recovered around 300 meters of copper cable wire worth P1.2 million. The suspects explained that they were just instructed to gather the cable wires in exchange for P1, 000 cash.
“Ang ginagawa nila dito sir dinadala nila ito sa isang junkshop tapos sinusunog nila at kinukuha nila yung copper yung tanso, e alam naman natin kung gaano kamahal yung tanso per kilo doon sila kumikita sir,” Talipapa Police Station Commander Police Lt. Col. Mark Janis Ballesteros said.
