Two Iranian nationals were arrested Monday afternoon after they allegedly stole a bundle of money from a bank along V. Gustilo Street in San Carlos City’s Barangay 4.
Police identified the arrested suspects as 41-year-old Ali Shajarat and 41-year-old Mehran Adibeh, both natives of Iran.
Based on information provided by San Carlos City police, the suspects allegedly stole P100,000 in bundled money from 24-year-old Karl Stephen Escobar, an assistant branch manager of a pawnshop.
The suspects, however, were spotted by bank representative, who immediately contacted the San Carlos City police, which resulted in their arrest.
