2 Bombay stores burglarized
As the police admitted the rise of criminality in the city, at least two Indian-run electronic stores along B. Inting St. at the commercial district of Tagbilaran had been burglarized by still unidentified perpetrators benefiting from the absence of a surveillance camera.
Investigators believed minors pulled the burglary and theft at the Bombay Bazaar and Electronics Supply owned by Sam Bohjwani, and Bohol Friendly Bazaar owned by Raymond Daryanani.
The perpetrators gained entry by cutting a portion of the roof made of galvanized iron just enough for an individual of light physique to get in and kicked hard on the hardiflex ceiling and got out through the same hole.
Both stores now have holes on the roof.
From the corner at the CPG Avenue, Bohol Friendly Bazaar comes first. The perpetrators spared the next store and went on to Bombay Bazaar.
According to the investigators, they received a telephone call from Daryanani at around 8:30 a.m. yesterday.
Daryanani said they closed at 6:30 p.m. on Monday and when he returned at 8:30 a.m. yesterday supposedly for another business day, he noticed that the drawer and other things near the cashier’s table are in disarray.
He realized later that the ceiling already had a hole through the roof, giving him an idea that they had been burglarized.
When he checked the drawer, the cash more or less P5,000 he left inside was already gone.
Upon reaching the crime scene, the responding police team learned that aside from Bohol Friendly Bazaar, another store–the Bombay Bazaar and Electronics Supply–had also been burglarized.
The perpetrators also cut a portion of the roof and destroyed the ceiling to gain entry.
Bhojwani, owner of Bombay Bazaar and Electronics Supply told investigators that the cash inside the drawer amounting to P15,000 was no longer there.
He said it was the second time this year that his store had been burglarized. The first was in January.
The two stores had to suspend business while police investigate the burglary and theft.
Police remained clueless, except that the perpetrators could be minors, since there is neither a CCTV camera installed nor a security guard on duty to give hints.
