On Saturday, the 14th of July; the Philippine Amusement Gaming Corp. (Pagcor) witnessed a huge theft worth P2.8M by its own 29 year old internal security officer Pascual Urian from the cash chamber at its Casino Filipino Mandaue branch in Mandaue city.
After throwing bills worth P1,000 and P500 from his possession (making onlookers scuttle), Urian ran away with a plastic bag containing the stolen cash bills after hiring a taxi in the heavy rain at 12.50 a.m. The Police in the subsequent building behind Pagcor was informed about the theft by Violita Ansibgat, a lady security guard employed with the Tactical Security Agency who was an eye-witness of the theft and even questioned Urian about the cash bag but he didn’t respond to her and fled away. Audi Pobre, the chief of internal security of Pagcor Mandaue branch was also informed about the theft by Violita who in turn reported the same to IDMB (Investigative and Detective Management Branch) of Mandaue City Police Office (MCPO) at 1.20 a.m.
The police was able to recover only P 80,000 from the spectators and a blue uniform coat plus ID, lying on the road at a short distance from the unit engaged with trucking activities. Unfortunately, nobody noticed taxi’s license plate. The vehicle hired by Urian moved towards Cebu City. Chasing Urian, police met his mother residing in Mandaue City’s Barangay Cubacub. She informed that Urian had left the house few months back after a dispute against his step-father over forfeiting his motorcycle without his consent. The room taken on rent by Urian in Barangay Punta Engano, Lapu-Lapu City under the direction of Michael Anthony Bastes, the Chief Inspector IDBM is also visited by police but all in vain as they are informed by the owner that Urian was last seen there only three days back.
Now Urian is being chased at seaports also as he may get far away through sea-route. During investigation, police came to know about the huge amount of money taken as debt by Urian from some people and a number of friends. As stated by Pobre, Urian was a citizen of Capiz in the region of Panay and was working at Pagcor from 2008 onwards as an important worker of a protection agency owned by an individual. Urian had no record of deceit or treachery in the past. He even entered the cash chamber many a times but never shown any signs of such an act that has left all concerned in deep shock.
