A 38-year-old businessman from Parañaque City lost R1-million worth of jewelry to suspected “Dugo Dugo Gang” members who allegedly duped his housemaid on All Souls’ Day, police said yesterday.
The Southern Police District Station 3 identified the victim as Michael Pullon, a light emitting diode lights distributor, of Multinational Village, Barangay Moonwalk. The maid, Roxan Baating, told case officer SPO2 Christopher Bilangel that Pullon and his family left their house at around 10 a.m. to visit a relative.
At around 1 p.m., an unknown woman called Baating and told her that Pullon and his family figured in a car accident and were severely injured. The woman instructed Baating to get the safety deposit box containing jewelry, passports, and other pertinent documents in Pullon’s room.
Baating took the safety deposit box and went to Puregold Villanueva in Parañaque where the woman instructed her to give the box to an unidentified man who allegedly helped Pullon. Baating went home and was shocked to find out that her employers were fine when they arrived at about 5:40 p.m. (Rachel Joyce E. Burce)
