MANILA, Philippines–Convicted prisoner and robbery gang leader Roy Gilbert “Ampang” Colangco was temporarily taken out of the New Bilibid Prisons in Muntinlupa City Tuesday evening to be admitted in a hospital.

A police source said Colangco, leader of the Ampangco-Colangco bank robbery group, was rushed to the Asian Hospital in Filinvest, Barangay (village) Alabang due to Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) around 6 p.m.


According to the source, Colangco ‎will be confined at the hospital but did not specify until when.


The leader of the robbery group and his four cohorts were arrested in Iligan City in January 2009.

‎Colangco’s gang was responsible for the heists at the Banco de Oro branch in San Fernando, Pampanga in 2005; Asia Trust Bank branch in Ever Gotesco, Commonwealth in Quezon City in 2003; and the Prudential Bank Evacom branch in Parañaque City in 2003.‎
