Unidentified men carted away still undetermined amount of items and accessories from a Smart Communications cellsite in Zamboanga Sibugay late Sunday night, a belated report said Wednesday.

Reports reaching the Western Mindanao Police Regional Office said the theft was reported by Consolador Gamolo, 42, field officer of Smart Communications, and a resident of Manticao, Misamis Oriental.

Gamolo told policemen that he discovered the robbery early Monday morning when he reported back for work in the cellsite located at Barangay Del Monte, Buug, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Initial investigation said the robbers stole six pieces of Heliax cable and jumper wires, and three pieces of brass bar from the cellsite. Smart engineers immediately replaced the stolen items so that cellular phone signals in the area may not be disrupted.
