Man arrested for breaking into MMDA chairman's office during weekend

Police took into custody Sunday a man who broke into the office of Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Francis Tolentino last weekend.

MMDA traffic discipline office head Yves Gonzalez on Sunday afternoon tweeted photos of police investigating Tolentino's office.

The photo showed police Scene of the Crime Operatives processing the area.

A separate report by radio dzBB's Divine Caraecle said the suspect was initially identified as Gilbert Moncano, a resident of Makati City.

An updated dzBB report on Monday said Moncano managed to enter Tolentino's office via the air-conditioning ducts, and get to other areas of the MMDA office.

But police are looking into the motive behind the break-in, as no money or food was taken.

Instead, they found several documents in Tolentino's office in disarray, while a vault belonging to Tolentino's predecessor Bayani Fernando appeared damaged. —KG, GMA News
