MALAYBALAY CITY | CRIME | BUKIDNON NEWS – A Twitter friend, who also happens to write for the Inquirer, alerted me about this earlier today. Apparently, a bank robbery in Malaybalay City happened earlier today, Monday, at around 10 in the morning.

At least three (3) bank robbers allegedly managed to take P500,000.00 early Monday morning while bank employees of the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) were replenishing cash into the DBP automated teller machine (ATM). A Bombo Radyo news report identified the cashier as Marie Cheryl Bolivia. The ATM machine is located at the Jose Un Building along Fortich Street, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

The still unidentified suspects shot the two bank security guards. One security guard, identified as one Isidro Cabalida, was rushed to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival. The other security guard, identified as one Pablito Padayao, is badly hurt. Meanwhile, a certain Anna Liza Saludes, was hurt by a stray bullet.

It’s pretty scary to think that this happened a few weeks before the start of the Kaamulan Festival 2011.

What are your thoughts about this?

  • City of Pines no more!!
    Might as well call it CITY OF CRIMES!!!
    Our parents used to say: Malaybalay is the safest place. When you do something wrong in this place you wil never get out. I used to believe that!!
    Mayor!!!
    Chief!!!
    wag masyadong mag enjoy sa festival preparation, security muna!!

  • How sad this thing is happening to our supposedly peaceful city? I hope our authorities be able to solve this one and all other unsolved crimes in recent past. Crime prevention should be the priority of our city government if we desire to attract tourists & investors.

  • Naa man tay TIG BANTAY SA KAMINGAW nga ga post atbang sa gaisano og dha mismo sa kilid sa jose un building noh??? murag ka bantay ko ana… naa ba cla sa ilang post ana nga panghitaboa???

  • Safety and security of the people is not the priority of the city government. The tax people’s money goes to sub-standard infrastructure projects where they can have kickbacks; travel junkets, and to salaries of non-performing contractuals most of whom are their relatives….

  • ang mga tulisan wa na nakontento sa mga karenderia lang. they are hitting big time now. why? they know the police in malaybalay city is inutile. gapadako lang sila ug tiyan mao nga sila kaapas sa mga tulisan. ilabi na kay kaamulan na sad, daghan na sad mga pulis nga hubog, samot di kaapas kung naay krimen… poor malaybalay… 🙁

  • It’s not only people who are in malaybalay are affected on this recent crime surge… also us taga-malaybalay who are away…we can’t help but always think of the safety of our love ones back home. We always keep tracking if the previous crimes in malaybalay is already solved instead we keep seeing in new and fresh crimes happening. People are losing confidence in our Police Force… sans the city officials of malaybalay. When are we getting positive results and bring back to good old malaybalay that we used to know.

  • Failure of the authorities to prevent crimes also reflects the failure of the people to “VOTE FOR THE RIGHT LEADERS” KAY NAGPADALA MAN SILA SA KUARTA SA MGA POLITIKO…IT NEEDS A STRONG POLITICAL WILL TO IMPLEMENT THE LAWS OF THE LAND..
    POLITICIANS WHO BOUGHT THERE WAY INTO OFFICE IS INUTILE TO DO THIS..THEY HAVE NO FEET TO STAND ON GOOD GOVERNANCE FOR THEY THEMSELVES ARE PICTURE OF EVIL.. PEOPLE OF MALAYBALAY WAKE UP, GET UP AND ACT NOW..OR ELSE KITA LANG GIHAPON ANG MAKALOLUOY..ASNA GALI!

  • Hangyo unta ko sa tigdumala sa DBP Malaybalay mga magbutang unta clag atm sa ilang ofis didto sa kapitol ground…labi na karon hapit na ang kaamulan mas accessible cia sa taga malaybalay ug turista…

  • Unsaon na lang nato ang malaybalay. Gipadagaan sa ilonggo na mayor, taga misamis na police. What do we expect? Wala man na silay concern sa mga tao sa malaybalay. Nakita nyo mga bag ong pulis nagtindug tindug sa dalan? dili kaha na sla mga underage? Unsa may hibal an if naa nay gubot? Manawag sa ila superior unsay buhaton? LOL
