BACOLOD City – Police are eyeing inside job behind the P1-million robbery of a fuel station in Barangay Alijis here yesterday.

Captain Elmer Bonilla, head of Police Station 7, said four unidentified persons forcibly entered the office of the station when the in-house pumpboy left for dinner around midnight.

Bonilla said the robbers then destroyed the vault and took the establishment’s three-day cash sales.

Upon checking the closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage, one of the four perpetrators was positively identified as an employee of the other branch of the fuel station.

Bonilla refused to name the station upon request of the management.

Bonilla said that robbery charges are being readied against the perpetrators who are at large
