Heavily-armed men steal 72 fighting cocks from Nabua farm

Engr. Ramiro Fabio Fortuna, owner of said farm, told the BICOL STANDARD that some ten to twelve persons wearing bonnets and armed with M16 rifles entered his farm and held his men at gunpoint as they carted away the game cocks.

“Grabe na kamugtakan sadi Nabua. Buko sana drugs kindi amo ngani ading nangyari kanako,” Fortuna said.

The suspects, according to the initial investigation report of the Nabua Municipal Police Station, gained entry into the farm by destroying the bamboo fence. They also fled via the same entry point to an unknown direction.

The same report disclosed that Edmundo Nuñez, the caretaker of the game farm, was roused from his sleep when the armed men arrived. Nuñez had been sleeping inside a house within the premises of the farm.

Fortuna said that the police are considering a gang known as the Laguna Group to be behind the heist. They are, however, not ruling out the possibility of an inside job.

He appealed to the public to report to the authorities any information they may have regarding the robbery.

He also reminded those who may be interested in purchasing the stolen cocks that the same is prohibited under the Anti-Fencing Law of 1979.

A follow-up investigation is still ongoing as of the time of this writing.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
