Sr. Insp. Arlan L. Delumpines, chief of the Central Police Station’s Investigation Division yesterday advised the public to be always alert and watchful of their motorcycles because of the increasing number of motorcycle thefts in this city.

Delumpines said motorcycle owners should be always vigilant on their motorcycles and see to it that they are properly locked when parked in any part of the city.

“Most of the target motorcycles  are Honda XRM, latest Honda Wave, and Suzuki Rider,”  he revealed.

Delumpines said that victims of motorcycle thefts should file case against suspects to give them the proper  penalties and make them suffer the consequences.

“Dapat ang mga biktima ay mag-file ng kaso para mahuli ang mga suspect at pagbayaran nila ang ginawa nila at para magtanda,”he said.

Police records showed that from January to the present there are some 40 motorcycles stolen or went missing.

Most recently, two motorbikes were stolen while parked. The victims were identified as  Myco Vincent Ong Dela Peña, 22, single, of Don Basillo Navarro St. San Jose Cawa-Cawa and Jejomar Ballesteros  Cortez, 30, married, of Aquino Drive, Canelar Moret.

Dela Peña reported to the police on Tuesday that his Honda XRM bearing plate number 3800-Jl  went missing while parked at San Jose, Cawa-Cawa.  Dela Peña went to visit his girlfriend, but when he was about to retrieve his motorcycle, it was not there where he parked it.

Meanwhile, Cortez reported to the Divisoria Police Station that his red motorcycle bearing license plate 9703-JL was stolen while parked at the back of a carinderia at April Drive, Guiwan Porcentro.

Cortez along with his three co-workers were aboard two motorcycles when they stopped to take breakfast at the said carinderia around 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Both cases are under investigation. — Abdul-ajid A. Abdurahman, WMSU Masscom Journalism IV
