POLICE Regional Office 13 director Brig. Gen. Romeo Caramat Jr. yesterday said that seven members of the Agusan del Sur Police Provincial Office led by a Police Lieutenant Colonel have been charged with robbery-in-band in connection with a P2.7 million robbery case in Davao Oriental last January 14.

In a report to Philippine National Police chief Gen. Dionardo B. Carlos, the Caraga police director identified those charged as Lt. Col. Jared Charles Joaquin, Police Senior Master Sergeant Ronald Laro, Staff Sgts. Dariel John Mozo, Richard Ayala and Lolito Valdez and Patrolmen Ivan Klein Osorio and Sebastian Batausa.

The criminal charges against the seven were filed before the Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur Provincial Prosecutor’s Office at 5:40 p.m. last Wednesday.

Carlos earlier ordered Caramat to restrict to quarters the policemen who were accused of involvement in a P2.7 million robbery case in Davao Oriental.

The accused policemen surrendered to the PRO13 regional headquarters last Monday after they were implicated in a robbery incident in Purok 6-B, Poblacion, Banay-Banay, Davao Oriental around 2 p.m. last January 14.

The victim identified as businessman Jasper Pabilic said that he lost P2.7 million in cash and exotic Agar wood to the suspects.
