Holdupper ID in Valenzuela

On Saturday, November 12, at 7 p.m., the suspect was arrested at his home in Barangay Karuhatan’s Cristobal Street, which is the address on his identification. The authorities responded at Goldilocks Bakeshop in Barangay Karuhatan after one of the staff reported the holdup incident.

The suspect allegedly threatened the female employee Warren Jean Figueroa, 25, of Dulong Tangke, Barangay Malinta, Valenzuela, and announced a holdup while brandishing a knife. Based on the report, he then stole P4,000 to P5,000 from the cash box of the store. Due to panic while escaping the attention of locals turned into him and chase him.

With his panic, Lucero also threw his knife and money box, which when counted had only P999, and it was only at this point that he realized he was being pursued. The only thing in the person’s bag was the suspect’s ID, which the police discovered when conducting their investigation.

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage also captured the suspect wearing the same black t-shirt, shorts, face mask, cap, wristwatch, and cap when he was apprehended just three and a half hours later at his home. Threats and intimidation will be used against the suspect in the case of the robbery.
