Two men who allegedly stole cellphones from patients who were staying in a quarantine facility were arrested in Naga City yesterday afternoon.
Francis Obanos Misenabre, 23, and Denver Sanchez Dagohoy, 39 were nabbed by the police in a manhunt. However, one of their alleged conspirators, a certain Saddam Villarino, remains at large.
The trio allegedly broke into a quarantine facility at the village of South Poblacion, located in the same city. The gang climbed the wall and sneaked into the room of the patients, where they stole six cellphones. The suspects fled from the crime scene, and while the patients and a security guard saw them, no one managed to stop the alleged thieves.
Misenabre and Dagohoy were arrested by the authorities at the latter’s home in the same village. They are now in the police’s custody but are staying at a cell of their own because they were exposed to COVID-19 patients.
Naga City police have said that this is the first time that a robbery had occurred at a quarantine facility.
