Two twin sisters were arrested on complaints filed with the police by classmates, schoolmates, friends and a teacher for running away with their money.
Arrested were Maria Luz and Maria Sheena, both surnamed Patoza and college students of a school in Canelar.

A police report disclosed that dozens of students who were mostly classmates of Patozas and at least a teacher appeared at the police station and lodged complaints against the twin sisters.

The complainants told the police that the Patozas borrowed from them money in different amounts and on different occasions.

They said that the Patozas told them sob stories to gain their trust and sympathy. Some of them told the police that the twin sisters borrowed from them money saying that their mother was very sick and confined in a hospital.

Richard Ledesma, owner of a photo studio,  also appeared at the police station after the twin sisters took also money from some of the female students with a promise that they will become models of a magazine being produced by his (Ledesma’s) studio. They (twins) introduced themselves as employees of Ledesma.

However, Ledesma said the twins never became his employees.

The twins’ mother was also disgusted on what her daughters did. She even encouraged the victims to file charges against them in court.

The mother said that she spent half of her life in Quatar to work but her money sent to the twins was squandered by the latter. — Dan Toribio Jr.
