‘Go after carnappers’


A BUSINESSMAN who lost his Hyundai Starex van to thieves last Saturday is calling for the creation of a task force to solve the car theft cases in Metro Cebu.

Danilo Teves said that the police should take the car theft incidents seriously especially since the van was the eighth  van stolen this year.

Teves parked his vehicle outside his house in  a barangay Subangdaku subdivision when it was stolen.

Chief Insp. Michael Anthony Bastes, chief of Investigation and Detection Management Branch (IDMB) in Mandaue City Police, said that they were pursuing leads in the carnapping incidents. /Reporter Jucell Marie P Cuyos

    Cebu is not a place for carnappers. To police authorities: get rid of them! DO YOUR JOB!

    The job can no longer be just going after them.  They are so many, ruthless and cares not a bit what they do to the owners of vehicles they steal?  Best thing to reduce these parasites in society is shoot to kill.  Enough of the bleeding heart kawawa naman attitude.  Shoot while they are driving stolen vehicles or in the process of stealing one.

    Too much confidence ka kasi. Akala mo di nanakawin ang yung Starex van mo. Bakit di mo nilagyan ng cross bar lock ang steering wheel nito? O kaya naman yung biglang mag sasound sya pag me kumakalikot sa kotse mo? Di nagising ka sana. Siguro kinatay na yun at nasa Banawe Street na.
