Trader killed in rob
() - April 9, 2002 - 12:00am
An Antipolo City couple and their nephew fought off attempts by three armed robbers to get their P300,000 earnings from a rice dealership business.

But they were of no match to the robbers. Rice dealer Jimmy Sarmento, brother-in-law of Antipolo deputy police chief Superintendent Mario Lico Sr., died on the spot with two bullet wounds in the chest.

His wife and Lico’s sister, Editha, 37, was shot in the back, and Lico’s son, Mario Jr., 27, in the neck. Both are in serious condition.

Police said the Sarmentos and Lico Jr. were taking a rest inside the couple’s house in Barangay Isidro when the robbers barged in Sunday night.

Superintendent Arturo Tolentino, Antipolo police chief, has deployed three police teams to go after the killers.

An inside job, he said, could possibly be involved because the robbers knew where the Sarmentos were keeping their earnings. — Non Alquitran
