MANILA, Philippines - Robbers took the car of a television reporter outside his home in Quezon City Thursday afternoon.

When he checked the car at past 5 p.m., it was nowhere to be found.

Caparas’ car was later found abandoned in a nearby barangay, police said.

Superintendent Limuel Obon, commander of the Quezon City Police District Station 10, said several items were stolen from the car.

These included two pairs of sunglasses, an audio system, a pair of rubber shoes and a spare tire, among others.
