Budol-Budol gang resurfaced in Zamboanga City victimizing a 60-year-old woman last Tuesday.

The victim was identified as Maria Alarcon of San Roque.

Alarcon told the police that she was inside a department store when two women approached and befriended her.

One of the two identified as Ailyn Mendoza introduced her and her companion as businesswomen engaged in buy and sell of marine products.

Alarcon said she felt as if she was hypnotized and was convinced to join the duo in their purported business which she was told would double her money.

Alarcon narrated they rode a Toyota Innova driven by an identified old man. Then Mendoza accompanied Alarcon aboard a tricycle and went to the latter’s house where they took her P26,000, Timex wrist watch and other jewelry.

Then Alarcon and Mendoza returned to the city proper and met again with the two other cohorts.

Alarcon said the three handed her a small bag locked with small padlock saying that in contained big amount of money.

However when she reached home she discovered the bag contained only P20 along with folded elementary pad paper. — Dan Toribio
