Cops identify one of the suspects in Mabuhay Manor robbery


 

Authorities have identified one of the suspects in last week's robbery at the Mabuhay Manor hotel in Pasay City, a report on QRT said Wednesday.

Police Superintendent Gene Licud, deputy chief for operations of the Pasay City Police, named the suspect as a certain Daniel "Dave" Constantino.

Constantino was the unmasked man wearing a white shirt as seen on the CCTV footage of the incident.

"Tinatawag din itong Anthony Herrera alyas Tony. Ito ay nagtrabaho bilang isang gwardya din at ito ay napasama sa isang grupo ng mga kriminal dito sa may Pasay," Licud said.

"Sa katunayan nga 'yung ibang tinutugis namin na mga kasama niya na hindi muna papangalanan sa ngayon, 'yun din 'yung mga nakasama na niya sa nakalipas na mga trabaho nila," he added.

Licud said Constantino's former live-in-partner was among those who identified him after seeing the video evidence.

"Meron kasi tayong, unang-una po 'yung mga CCTV na nakuha natin, nagbigay sa atin ng lead. May lumutang po tayong mga nagmagandang-loob at in-identify po nila ito positively, lalung-lalo na 'yung kanyang dating live-in partner na siya mismo ang nag-sabi na kilala nga niya 'yung lumabas sa CCTV na 'yun," Licud said.

Licud clarified that they have not yet arrested the suspect, but they already filed charges against him.

Police also said they already have information on the other suspects of the robbery.

Four armed men carted away the hotel's income which amounted to P33,000 on the morning of January 2. They also took cash and personal belongings of hotel guest Dominador Gomez, an overseas Filipino worker.

Authorities have been eyeing the possibility that the incident was an "inside job." —Anna Felicia Bajo/KBK, GMA News
