CITY OF CAUAYAN, Isabela — Five gunmen on Friday hijacked a trailer truck carrying P7-million worth of rice along the highway in Nueva Ecija, a belated police report said Sunday.
The shipment of 750 cavans owned by Reynaldo Montemayor of San Fermin village here was being delivered from Metro Manila when the gunmen intercepted the truck in the town of Carranglan.
The truck driver and two of his helpers told police that the robbers took their mobile phones after commandeering their vehicle. They were later released in Calumpit, Bulacan, police said.
