'Dentistirador' strikes again?
MANILA, Philippines – Police released the composite sketch of another “dentistirador” suspect who robbed a dental clinic staff in Concepcion on Wednesday.
Police said the suspect, who logged in using the name JV Castro, is about 35 to 38 years old, dark-skinned, about 5’8” to 5’9” in height, and weighs about 180 to 200 lbs.
The suspect is allegedly armed with a .38 caliber revolver.
The victim told police that the suspect has a resemblance with arrested suspect Alberto de la Cruz, who was tagged in a series of dental clinic robberies in Quezon City, Las Pinas, Paranaque and Marikina.
De la Cruz was arrested in 2011 but was able to post bail.
Police continue to advise dental clinics to implement security measures such as closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras and security guards.
