THREE old cellphones and cash amounting to P5,000 were stolen during a break-in at the office of the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) on Oranbo Drive in Pasig City early Tuesday morning.
PFF general secretary Atty. Ed Gastanes said investigators suspect a member of an `akyat-bahay’ gang was behind the incident.
Aside from the cellphones and cash of P2,500 each which two PFF staff lost, no other valuables such as laptops, footballs, and important documents, were stolen, according to Gastanes.
“It’s a petty crime. Some staff lost some money, pero wala namang nabuksan (na kuwarto) except for some drawers,” Gastanes said in a chat with Spin.ph at the PFF office on Wednesday.
The PFF official said the culprit could have used the fire escape to get inside the building, which always has a security guard stationed at the entrance.
