Police identify one of four suspects in pawnshop heist

From basag-kotse groups, local police authorities are now faced to solve another headache: the resurgence of Acetylene Gang.

Yesterday morning, members of the Acetylene Gang made known of their presence by attacking a pawnshop along E. Lopez St., Brgy. Fatima, Jaro, Iloilo City.

Incidentally, the pawnshop is owned by no less than Rosalie Sarabia-Treñas, the wife of Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas.
