Collector shot dead
A COLLECTOR of a private company was shot dead during a holdup in Jose Panganiban, CamNorte recently.
The victim identified as Nona Talento was believed carrying about P700,000 from collections when attacked by two unidentified motorcycle-riding suspects, the local police station said in a report.
The incident happened at Purok 4, Baranggay South Poblacion on Wednesday, July 4, at about 10am.
It appeared that Tolentino just came from the town’s public market where she saw her clients.
Police said the victim fought off the suspects who tried to grab her money bag.
The suspects were forced to shot her three times, killing her, police said, adding that the suspects knew she was carrying a big amount.
Tolentino was an employee of Helen Trading at Baranggay Awitan in Daet.
