2 arrested, P500K in fake cash recovered in Agusan del Norte


MANILA, Philippines — Two persons were arrested in Agusan del Norte for alleged swindling and for possession of at least P500,000 in counterfeit money, police said.

In a statement, the Caraga police said they arrested suspects Robert Daplas, 40, and his live-in partner “Milagros,” 41, on Tuesday after victim Angel Amper reported that the duo paid her with “bogus money” when they bought 4 kilos of roasted pork.


Amper said that she was going to confront the suspects when they fled. In the town of Nasipit, the suspects were arrested at a highway checkpoint close to the Triangulo barangay (village).

Police said the suspects had surrendered six bundles of counterfeit money worth P500,000.


Formal complaints for swindling and illegal possession and use of false treasury are being readied against the suspects, according to the Caraga police. — Catherine Dabu, INQUIRER.net trainee
