The LBC outlet located along P. Rodriguez Street in Barangay Libertad, Bogo City got robbed two days ago. It was the third LBC robbery this month following Barangay Tabok, Mandaue City and  Barangay San Nicolas, Cebu City. 

Two robbers entered the establishment shortly before 9 a.m. and reportedly  took away cash worth Php 70,000, a mobile phone worth Php7,000, and a pocket WiFi of one of the employees. SunStar reported that one of the robbery suspects, clad in sweatshirt, cargo short pants and a blue cap, pulled out a .38 revolver and held the three employees(manager Melecio Maitom and customer associates Angel Mary Estrera and Camelo Damos) at gunpoint.

Hermano Mallari, Bogo City police chief, interviewed by The Freeman thought there might be a backup waiting outside. The robbers fled on board separate motorcycles without plate numbers. Mallari also told The Freeman that it is likely that the robbers were not from the City of Bogo as they were not afraid of being identified. They reportedly did not wear masks to conceal their faces.
